Katie Wirick is a student who was born in Thornton, Colorado who has danced for Denver Dance Starz for 15 years as a recreational and competitive dancer. She specializes in tap but also has skills in many other styles such as jazz, ballet, contemporary, lyrical, and hip hop. Although dancing has been a huge part of her life, she has also been very involved in playing Alto and Baritone Saxophone in marching, concert, and jazz band. Rhythm and articulations have always been part of her life whether that is tapping her feet on the stage, or playing her saxophone at a festival. Katie was also a part of the dance team at her school for a year and received additional hip hop, jazz, and poms training. She received many opportunities by her band director and staff to help with choreography as well as dance with the colorguard. Katie’s precision and attention to detail has helped her excel academically as well as artistically and she has maintained a 4.0 GPA. She attends CU Boulder and is majoring in Neuroscience and plans to continue her dance career through Rocky Mountain Rhythm. Katie is beyond excited to work along with the amazing dancers at Rocky Mountain Rhythm and is very thankful to be offered such a great opportunity!
