Katrina Kutsch, a native of Austin, Texas, began her dance training at the age of three under the direction of Lucretia Lomax Alvarez at The Dance Studio. There she studied Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Lyrical and was blessed to receive training from Svetlana Krylova, Brenna Kuhn, and Amanda Booth-Neidhardt. In 2004 she expanded her training to include Ballet and Jazz at the newly established Metamorphosis Dance Academy, under the direction of Melanie Sistrunk Kregel. In 2006 she received the Senior Best All Around Scholarship at Texas Association of Teachers of Dance (TATD), and in 2008 she received the TATD Merit Scholarship to continue her dance education. Katrina graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern Methodist University in 2012 with a BFA in Dance Performance and a Minor in Psychology. While at SMU she performed a wide variety of works, including: George Balanchine’s Serenade, Robert Battle’s Battlefield, Danny Buraczeski’s Pithecanthropus Erectus, Martha Graham’s Panorama, Adam Houghland’s Five Preludes, and Jessica Lang’s Prayers to name a few. The past two summers she has been fortunate enough to attend the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Summer Intensive and is very thankful for the life changing experience. In 2012 she returned to her hometown and became a Resident Artist with Austin Metamorphosis Dance Ensemble. She is very grateful to all the teachers she has had throughout the years and hopes to share her experience, knowledge, and love of dance with the next generation of artists.
