Katelyn Lodell is a South Whidbey native and alumni of Island Dance and Whidbey Island Dance Theatre.
She earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Arizona School of Dance, one of the top programs in the nation. She danced with their performance ensemble and performed featured rolls in Serenade, Swan Lake, and several original works. She graduated Suma Cum Laude in 2009.
She then moved back to the northwest and performed with local companies such as DASSdance, 3rd Shift Dance, and as a guest artist with WIDT.
Her background also includes 4 years in the health and fitness industry as a personal trainer and barre fitness instructor, which gives her dance teaching curriculum an athletic edge. She is excited to be back on Whidbey Island and bringing her experience to the dance community she calls home.
