Meet Katie Metzger!

Get to know Company Dancer and Rehearsal Director Katie!

Why did you start dancing?

I have been dancing since I was 3 years old. My mom said it would make me less shy. I think it worked!

Who or what is your biggest dancing inspiration?

Growing up I always looked up to my instructor and mentor Jennifer Medina. She was so creative and passionate! I still look up to her to this day.

What is your proudest dance achievement so far?

Oh gosh let’s see – Becoming Rehearsal Director for an amazing professional dance company is pretty far up on the list.

Tell us about your hobbies outside of dance.

I love the gym, love to hike, and shopping. Definitely love shopping.

Dogs or cats?

Dogs but also love my new kitty addition. I think he has me becoming a cat person as well.

What has been your most memorable moment with the company?

So many to choose from, but I absolutely loved dancing on the Kauffman stage for TEDxKC last year for a sold out crowd. It was definitely one for the record books!

Favorite musical artist or band?

I love all kinds of music from T-Pain to Incubus to Backstreet Boys and Justin Timberlake.

Why did you choose to be a professional dancer?

It challenges me physically, mentally, and artistically every day. I absolutely love the hard work, sweat, and tears that have built my career thus far and cannot wait to see how it continues to shape and grow.
