KATIE JAMIESON: Barre Fitness & Professional Irish Dance Instructor
Katie began her dance journey at age five, studying many forms of dance throughout the years. In 2008 Jamieson earned her bachelor’s degree in fine arts from SUNY Brockport, where she minored in dance performance, studying ballet & modern. Katie was introduced to Irish dance at age twelve, where she became very heavily involved.
She proceeded to have very rewarding competitive & professional careers with Irish Dance, retiring from competition as a seven-time World Championships qualifier & touring the US with Celtic rock group, The Tartan Terrors, as their lead Irish Dancer. She is now a certified Irish Dance Teacher, TCRG, and owns and directs her own dance school, Jamieson Irish Dance & Creative Arts located in Henrietta NY.
Most recently, in June of 2016, Katie is in the final stages of certification to share the art of BootyBarre, a dance based fitness class. Given her wide dance background, translating into a fitness setting was an exciting new adventure, one that she is excited to share with all the NuMvmnt Community!
