Kate Stashko is a dancer, choreographer, teacher and writer. A graduate of the Professional Training Program at the School of Toronto Dance Theatre, she has worked with Peggy Baker, Helen Husak, Davida Monk, Melina Stinson, Heidi Strauss and the Good Women Dance Collective, among others. She has presented her work in Montréal, Alberta and Toronto and currently teaches ballet and contemporary dance at the University of Alberta. Upcoming projects include performances with the Good Women Dance Collective and working with the Jen Mesch Dance Conspiracy on a new dance film. Says Kate, “My favourite place to be is on stage as an interpreter, but more and more I am noticing how my other roles and experiences feed my abilities as a performer. The choreographing, teaching, writing, travelling and people-watching I do all surface when I am performing.”
Kate's involvement with The Dance Current began in 2007 as an intern. She has since been Circulation Coordinator, Listings Editor, staff writer and is now a regular contributor.
