Dance Teacher · Musical Theatre
Katie has been singing and dancing since the age of 4. At 18 she went on to train at Liverpool Theatre School where she trained intensively for three years, graduating with a Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre.
Since leaving she has been involved with a range of professional TV work and theatre productions such as; Jill in ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’, Sarah in Sky Ones ‘Bulletproof’, Belle in Beauty and The Beast, Wendy in ‘Peter Pan’, Helena in ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ and Daisy in the new musical ‘Liver Birdsong’.
Katie is very passionate about teaching and enjoys passing her professional experiences onto young aspiring dancers and performers!
When Ruby asked me at the age of 3 if she could go to ballet, I enrolled her at Shooting Stars with Sam. Since then she has loved every minute from the teachers, to the shows and still loves her ballet at the age of 12. She is now training for Pointe and can’t wait to get her shoes. Thanks to Becky and the team for nurturing her throughout the years.
My daughter started at Shooting Stars in summer 2018 and absolutely loves it. She’s now also moved into the Pre-Elites and has recently had her first competition and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would highly recommend.
Becky and the shooting stars team have been fantastic! My daughter started dancing aged 4 with Becky and has progressed to be in the pre elite group now aged 8. She absolutely loves it and her confidence and ability has just grown and grown. Now she is competing in competitions and loves doing the regular shooting stars shows. I couldn’t recommend shooting stars enough.
Isla has been with Becky since she was two and a half for over eight years now! She loves her dance lessons and taking part in annual shows and competitions. Becky and her team of teachers always have a smile on their faces for the children and it's clear to see they love what they do.
Over the past 3 years both of my daughters have danced ballet, tap and street dance with SSDA. They love it and really enjoy themselves whilst learning great dance skills. The classes are fun, exciting and great exercise, with teachers who are skilled, very encouraging, and friendly building confidence and self esteem. SSDA shows are amazing and the girls love being a part of them. As parents we are very proud. I would highly recommend SSDA to any parent looking for dance classes for their children.
Matthew joined Shooting Stars September 2012 age 6, joining the Woolston group. Such a friendly & enjoyable place to go and great classes as the groups are split in age groups so the little ones are not trying to keep up with the older ones. He loves every bit of it and loves learning new moves & showing them off. He enjoys the performances that are put on to the public throughout the year and the annual summer & Christmas shows.
