Hi! I am 24 years old and currently live in Sioux Falls, SD. I have been dancing for 21 years and teaching for 10 years all at Dancers Unlimited! Throughout my dance career I had the opportunity to go to various camps, including Dance Olympus, and train at Broadway Dance Center in New York City. After high school, I went to college at Iowa Lakes and Minnesota State University, Mankato where I got my Bachelor’s degree in accounting. I currently spend my days working as an accountant at Eide Bailly, and spend my nights teaching some of our amazing dancers at DU!
I absolutely love teaching dance because I get to pass my passion onto others. Nothing beats seeing their grace, beauty, and fun energy shine through up on the stage after months of hard work!
I am 25 years old and have been dancing for 23 years along with teaching for 10! I started dancing at Dancers Unlimited as soon as I could walk. After graduating I chose to continue my education and love for dance in Southern California. There I received my degree in Performing Arts and worked with the following amazing companies; Seaworld San Diego, Legoland, Mojalet, Mesa Dance Collective, and California Rhythm Project. Alongside of school and performing myself, I continued to teach children throughout Southern California and on Coronado Island. I also have been so blessed to have my mom, Kathy Thate, take me to New York City and Orlando, Florida to train at Broadway Dance Center and compete in a national competition. Now I am located in Ledyard, Iowa where I am blessed to married and soon to be raising our first child.
Teaching dance and children is my world and passion. Creating a safe place that they can come to and be active is my goal. The art of dance as so much to be shown to the world. I love being able to inspire kids to be unique, express themselves, and follow their dreams!
Kathy Thate has been owner and operator of Dancers Unlimited for 36 years. She studied dance at Minnesota State University. She has choreographed for Show choirs, plays and National hip hop champions, performed with Weird Al Yankovich. She teaches Tap, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Ballet, Pointe, Jazz and Tumbling. She is available for choreography for any events and programs.
Owning studios and working with my company is not what I choose to do, but its who I am. Music itself feeds my soul and makes me feel a joy that cannot be put into words. It's my goal to share this excitement and love for dance and music with everyone.
