Intersection Dance Team Director and Dance Teacher
Kate Grochowski began her formal classical training at The Sarasota Ballet School at age five. She studied under Deborah Vinton, a Fellow of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and Fellow of the Cecchetti United States of America (CUSA). After studying under Deborah Vinton for 14 years, she begin to pursue a professional performing career.
Kate Grochowski attended Elon University in North Carolina to earn a B.F.A. in Dance Performance and Choreography. In additional to the emphasis on performance and choreography, Kate Grochowski focused on the pedagogy of dance, somatics in action, anatomy for dancers, and entrepreneurship. During this season, she had the privilege of working with Gaspard & Dancers, directed by former Pilobolus member Gaspard Louis, and with the Kearns Dance Project, directed by Lauren Kearns. Additionally, she studied and danced under Marga Nativo at the Florence Dance Center in Florence, Italy.
While she has pursued performance and choreography, Kate Grochowski has simultaneously been teaching at private dance schools and pre-professional studios. She has become incredibly passionate about educating the next generation and has found herself engulfed in pedagogy at this time.
Kate is married to her high school sweetheart who serves as an officer in the U.S. Army. She has also embraced a career in marketing, establishing her own consulting agency serving small to medium sized businesses. She and her husband serve in the STUDENTS Ministry at The Austin Stone and are incredibly passionate about advancing the Kingdom. She is thrilled to do so through alongside the Arts Avenue team! She looks forward to inspiring young dancers here in Georgetown to use their gifts to bring all the glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
