Kate Schwab, born in Sarasota, fell in love with dance at "mommy and me" class at two years old. She competitively danced at local studios, including Flex, Zero Gravity, and SRQ. After deciding competitive dancing wasn't her style, she focused on ballet and modern dance at West Coast Civic Ballet, Deborah Vinton Dance, Booker Middle School, Fuzion Dance Artists and various intensives and master classes. She is currently a high school junior at Booker High School where she studies Ballet, Modern, and Jazz. Kate feels fortunate to be a part of Sarasota Contemporary Dance as an intern and #1 fan. When she's not dancing she loves spending time with her family in North Carolina, paddle boarding, and sleeping.
