Dancing Arts Center Welcomes Kate Bresee

by Karyn Edison

Kate currently teaches at Boston University and PB&J Dance Classes for Kids in Brookline. She also is an education artist at the deCordova Museum as well as a consultant for the Tony Williams Dance Center and its “Urban Nutcracker” production.

Working creatively to educate dancers, Kate brings a wealth of experience from around the world. After receiving a BA in Dance from Bennington College, she worked in Europe for 20 years as a professional modern dancer, choreographer and educator. She founded and directed the successful Bresee Danse Kompani, based in Oslo, Norway, from 1988 to 2000, and was commissioned to choreograph Oslo’s 1,000 birthday celebration in 2000.

“Kate's professional career has taken her to Russia, throughout Europe and here in the U.S. at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. This type of experience, along with her positive attitude and passion for dance makes her a true ambassador of modern dance. Kate also compliments the Dancing Arts Center’s mission of finding well-rounded educators who can use their experience to encourage students to explore and develop their own musicality, coordination and love of movement,” says Dancing Arts Center Director, Karyn Edison.

About the Dancing Arts Center:
The Dancing Arts Center, located in Holliston, Massachusetts, provides instruction in
classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, character, hip hop, pointe, pas de deux, and choreography, and offers a variety of other performance-related classes through the year.  DAC’s teaching foundation is based on the philosophy that good dance training awakens the senses and stimulates emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. It believes in nurturing each student’s desires, and enhancing their love of dance, through creative expression, exploration, and discovery.

Its small class size fosters careful, and progressive development of each student’s artistry.
