Katherine was born and raised In the Madison, Wisconsin area. She started dancing at age 3, and her love and passion for it have not stopped since that first class. She was competitive throughout her career having success at both the regional and national levels. At age 14 she traveled to New York to study for 10 days and perform off Broadway.
She is thrilled to be teaching at NSOD and sharing her passion for dance. Her goal is to share her ability to express feelings through dance as well as helping her students find their powerful inner confidence.
Katherine and her husband have 3 kids. A daughter who is part of the competition team at NSOD, 2 energetic boys and their beloved dogs.
The Smith family has lived in Washington, Utah, and Nebraska during Adam’s time in the Army. They are happy and excited to have been able to lay down their roots here in Ankeny in 2017.
When Katherine is not in the studio she enjoys being with her family and friends. She loves anything outdoors, reading, eating ice cream and traveling when she can.
“A dance teacher helps their students find the song in their heart, the beat in their feet, and a passion for life.” -Unknown
