Katie is so excited to join the Usdan family for the first time in 2021! She will be teaching tap and ballet, but also loves all forms of dance. Currently, Katie teaches tap and musical theater in the NYC area and is the assistant director of Rumbamena, a Latin Dance Company. Katie began teaching 7 years ago and has learned from/taught alongside Justin Boccitto, Shelby Kaufman, and Ray Hesselink while studying at Broadway Dance Center in both their dance training program as well as their choreography program. Outside of Usdan, she will be going to the beach, teaching classes all throughout the New York City area, and hopefully attending some outdoor performances this summer. A fun fact about Katie is that she has been tap dancing since she was 4 years old!
