about me

In these weird times, I've been displaced from my regular job of teaching/traveling -- a weird feeling to loose that after over 15 years of doing just that.


So, in this new virtual world, I am available for online work:

-- Video reviews, via email or Skype/Zoom

-- Virtual private lessons, via Skype/Zoom, on:

  • Balboa
  • Lindy hop
  • Teaching / pedagogy
  • Musicality
  • Music theory/structure
  • Choreography consultation
  • Methods & tools for practicing at home


I also have a website for online learning; a pay-per-lesson format, with no subscription requirements:

Official bio:
"Following in the path of her great ancestor, Swedish explorer Sven Hedin, Kate has traveled to the greatest unknown regions of following and footwork. Aside from a love of classically inspired Lindy Hop, she is most known for her unique and elegant style of Balboa.


The result is an impressive resume. Kate holds championship titles in almost every major competition, including the American Classic Balboa Championships, the International Lindy Hop Championships, the Euro Balboa Cup, and more. She is also a highly sought-after competition judge. In 2012, she released two highly praised DVDs specifically for Balboa followers on technique and aesthetics. As a teacher, Kate is known and loved for her logic-based language, her unique methods of teaching technique, and, overall, never leaving student followers disappointed.


She is proud to have held, along with her friends at Get Hep Swing in Cleveland, the Guinness World Record for longest dance party ever (52 hours, 3 minutes). Her fashion is admired by many, her lines desired as far as the Orient. She also does trapeze."
