Originally from Chicago, Kate Coleman's ballet training got underway at the age of two and a half with a small studio in Naperville, Illinois after she broke her femur in a tunnel slide accident. The doctors recommended dance as therapy to walk again, and as they say “the rest is history.”
She went on to graduate with a BFA in Dance Theater from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy Los Angeles. While there, she created, directed and choreographed two student productions, including a site-specific work based on the poems of Shel Silverstein, and directed, edited and choreographed a student film after discovering her love for dance on film.
Kate has been with LA Contemporary Dance Company since 2016 as a guest artist and company member. She has choreographed for her personal favorite project of the year, a collaboration with Loyola Marymount University for the Children’s Music Concert, her pieces include Rainbow Fish and Mother Goose Tales.
