About the Studio Owner/Children's Instructor:
Born and raised in Sonoma County, Katherine Gallagher has danced all her life and specializes in teaching children and beginners to dance. With 18 years teaching experience she believes creativity is innate in all people and loves to guide them in their creative expression. Katherine studied ballet under Regina Jackson in Santa Rosa before moving to the Los Angeles area where she furthered her dance studies with training in numerous dance styles. Upon returning to Sonoma County, Katherine opened her own dance school in the Spring of 2002. In addition to her own dance studio she has taught for several studios in Sonoma County, the City of Santa Rosa, and as an artist in the schools for the arts outreach of the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. Katherine holds a degree in Communications with a minor in Business Administration from Azusa Pacific University. She is also a motivational speaker, author and is an active volunteer in her community. Katherine lives in Santa Rosa with her husband and two daughters.
Le Studio hosts a variety of both adult and kid classes and workshops. Le Studio is a fun, creative, learning environment that provides a foundation for a lifetime of dance/exercise while also engaging those who may just dance for a season.
We currently offer classes that benefit your mind (Develop greater discipline, concentration, and mind-body connection), body (Increase your flexibility, improve posture, add grace, and musicality), and soul (have fun and feed your spirit).
