"I feel really good about myself when I dance at Downtown Dance. "

- Seneca

"I have two daughters who dance at Downtown Dance and Katherine does an amazing job of meeting each of them where they are in their abilities; she clearly embraces her slogan, 'where every body can dance!' In addition to offering instruction that encourages strong technique and beautiful choreography, I feel that Katherine and Downtown Dance truly offer a solid foundation that develops a Love of dancing. I am always impressed with the strong community feeling that I experience when attending Downtown Dance's Spring Showcase; I believe that Katherine is wonderfully skilled at creating a beautiful environment for dance. "

- Paul McDermott

"We feel so lucky to have found Downtown Dance for our son! he loves going to class and is always enthusiastic afterwards about what a great time he had. Miss Katherine is a patient, compassionate and intuitive teacher. She really cares about her students. We have appreciated her suggestions on how best to help our son thrive. We don’t feel like just a number. The classes are well run, and she does a great job of keeping the flow from one activity to another. The studio is friendly and welcoming. We’ve enjoyed meeting some of the other dancers and their families and have formed some lifelong friendships from this wonderful community. "

- Tamsyn Campbell

"In Downtown Dance, I've found the studio I've always been looking for: one that challenges its students to grow and improve technically while providing a place for each dancer to explore their own unique movement, regardless of level, ability or age. Katherine and her fellow instructors are gifted teachers who inspire a sense of community through the joy of dance! "

- Kijrstin Minarsich

"My daughter’s been dancing with Katherine for many years, and I’m grateful that Downtown Dance continues to be a place where she feels strong and confident, graceful and creative, challenged and applauded. "

- Jennifer Richter

"When Downtown Dance opened, back in 2011, it was the only studio for adults to take a dance class- I was overjoyed and have been attending ever since. My daughter has also been taking classes with Katherine since she opened her doors, and is developing a deep love for movement. That’s the beauty of the gift Katherine gives her students. She brings an opportunity to explore the art of dance, in a space which feels comfortable, non-competitive, enjoyable and creative. While also providing focused direction, and setting a solid foundation of technique- opening the gateway, and allowing the continuation of growth for any person who finds their passion to be ‘dance’. I am so grateful!"

- Melissa Montague

"As an adult dancer, Downtown Dance has provided me exactly the experience I was looking for to get back into the studio. Katherine and the other instructors provide a welcoming environment for former dancers to get back in the groove and completely new dancers to take a risk. Together we all have the opportunity to have fun and grow. I adore my Downtown Dance Corvallis family. Katherine gives 100% to all of her students. The instruction is top notch, Katherine raises the bar on her productions every year, and she stays true to her mission that every body can dance."

- Sara Slack

"When I was young, I tried every activity and sport that Corvallis had to offer; the day I started at Downtown Dance I knew I had found my home away from home, and the studio has been a creative and safe place for me ever since. "
