ELEV8 YOUTH DANCE PROJECTS
In 2010, Kathy created Elev8 Youth Dance Projects in Victoria. Elev8 focused on keeping contemporary youth dancers at home with their families while enabling them to explore advanced dance experiences. Dancers attended masterclasses with touring companies (Alvin Ailey, Cuban National Ballet) and choreographic work with renowned Canadian professionals (Justine Chambers, Monica Proenca, Darryl Tracy (TDT). Working with youth as they push through the pressures of a professional career path while still in school is close to Kathy’s heart.
In Vancouver, Kathy co-founded and directed Deas Island Dance Centre where she was able to share her passion for dance and youth. She also founded and directed Purple Feet Youth Dance Co. (Vancouver), mentoring advanced youth contemporary dancers into their career paths.
