Katelyn Hamilton 

        Katelyn began her dance training from a very young age at Showbiz Kids and Dance Company and other various studios in the Atlanta area. Along with her early dance training, she also started dancing competitively at the age of 5. She competed at competitions such as Showstoppers, Stage One, Applause, BravO!, and many others where she won a variety of adjudication awards, titles, and overall awards. During her time in high school, she decided to focus on furthering her Ballet and Pointe training at Metayer Conservatory of the Arts. She then had the opportunity to perform in Regine Metayer’s rendition of the Nutcracker, titled, A Christmas Fairytale, where she performed lead roles such as Marzipan, Chinese, and Spanish. After graduating from high school, she then chose to expand her training at a collegiate level at Florida State University as a Dance major and plans to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2021. Since her time at Florida State, she has performed in re-staging of works from artists such as Dan Wagoner, Ann Carlson, and Peter Chu. She has also worked alongside Master of Fine Arts Candidates at Florida State University such as Ryan McMullen, Christa Williams, and Francisco Graciano. Katelyn has recently created a piece in collaboration with her fellow colleague, Aaron Smith, titled, “Relief in Tandem” which was performed at the American College Dance Association Southeast Conference 2019 and Florida State University’s School of Dance 2019 spring concert, “Days of Dance”. She looks forward to furthering her training this summer at the Paul Taylor American Dance Summer Intensive in New York.
