Owner and InstructorIt is often said that you will hear Kate Bratt long before you see her. Kate's fun-loving personality, animated gestures, attention to detail, and copious supply of knowledge make her the ideal instructor for both new and experienced dancers.
Winning regional and state competitions in elite gymnastics led Kate to search for a new competitive outlet after she got "too old" for gymnastics, which naturally led her to ballroom dancing. While consistently making finals through her career in pro-am, am-am, and pro competitions is fun, seeing her students succeed on the social and competitive dance floor keeps her motivated. Kate also counts working with the youth in the local college and high school on-going programs as a fun experience. Ballroom dancing has afforded her creative opportunities such as performing with Michael Johns (American Idol) and Gene Simmons (KISS), working on a national campaign for LensCrafters, and performing in the Minnesota Fringe Festival. In her spare time, Kate enjoys cooking, working out, gardening, and having dance parties with her entourage of handsome husband, four lovely daughters, and two awesome sons. Kate also composes content for a blog, Riot and Frolic, and Dance Comp Review to keep sleeping hours to a minimum.
