Originally from San Antonio, Catherine discovered her love for movement at a young age in her first dance classes. She began her early training with Scott Conway and Buddy and Susan Trevino at the San Antonio School for the Performing Arts, and holds a BFA in Ballet from Texas Christian University. While at TCU, Catherine had the opportunity to perform in a number of works, notably the Pas de Six from Napoli and Gerald Arpino’s Birthday Variations as Mauve Girl. After graduating, she joined Ballet San Antonio, where her favorite roles included Grandma in Gabriel Zertuche’s The Nutcracker and Little Red Riding Hood in The Sleeping Beauty. An interest in supporting the arts through fundraising brought Catherine to Dallas in the summer of 2015, where she now works for TACA (The Arts Community Alliance). Through her years of dancing, Catherine often turned to group fitness as a means of cross training and injury recovery, and a need to keep movement in her life after transitioning into a “desk job” brought her to The Ballet Burn. Catherine brings three years of fitness teaching experience in both Fort Worth and San Antonio to her new endeavor as an instructor with The Ballet Burn, and she can’t wait to share this addicting workout with Dallas!
