Founder & Artistic Director,
East Coast Academy of Preforming Arts
Kat was a typical “theatre kid” growing up and attended singing, dancing and drama classes throughout her childhood. Having studied dance at Bray Institute of Further Education for three years, Kat received a scholarship from the University of Sunderland where she completed her training in 2014. Kat graduated from the University of Sunderland with a BA Hons in Dance and Musical Theatre.
Since then she has worked for a number of stage schools and musical societies around Ireland, and continues to choreograph musicals and pantomimes throughout the East Coast. Kat established the East Coast Academy of Performing Arts to share with her students in Greystones & Rush her love for the stage and the knowledge and experience that she has gained over the years.
