About Me

Katie is a freelance Dancer and Actor, based in Kent and London.
Since the age of four, I’ve trained with Prima Stage School of Performing Arts. Here, I learnt a range of dance styles and completed IDTA exams in: Ballet, Modern Jazz, Musical Theatre, Street and Contemporary dance. Alongside I’ve competed LAMDA level 3 certificates in Acting exams up to grade 8 and performed in annual shows.

Through this, I’ve learnt the importance of stage presence, in addition to refining my diverse dance/drama skill-set. I’ve also experienced working backstage and assisting the stage manager – allowing me to gain an understand of how all roles contribute to the performance outcome.
This training so far has helped me become an accomplished and well-rounded performer

I became a member of the NFYA in 2017, completing a two-week intensive course, where we created a short film called ‘The TA’ expanding my knowledge of the growing screen industry.

I also appeared in the West End Production of ‘The Secret Garden’ (Youth Edition) at the Ambassadors Theatre in 2016, directed by the British Theatre Academy, providing me with invaluable hands on experience of working professionally within the industry.

I’ve had experience in previous speaking roles as well as extra work such as when i was the Nursing Maid in ‘Hetty Feather’ for the CBBC.

The Secret Garden (Youth Edition) was directed by the British Theatre Academy, and with only a week of rehearsals per Team, the performances where an amazing experience of working professionally in the theatre industry as well as having an exciting opportunity of working in the London West End.
