Kate Whalen

Kate has been studying dance for the 34 years, primarily ballet and tap, but also some jazz. She has studied with Donna Antell, Jen Barden, Lisa Hopkins and at UVM and Steps. She's been teaching at Spotlight since 2006.

A musical theater performer and choreographer she's been performing with Lyric Theatre Company since 1985 and was choreographer for Peter Pan in 2000 and choreographer/assistant director for Rent in 2012. She's also choreographed for Stowe Theatre Guild.

After many years of focusing on ballet , Kate returned to tap after seeing Lyric's 42nd Street in 1992. As she says, "Watching that show, I fell head over heels for tap, got back into a class, and was hooked for life!"
