Kathryn Hetrick has held an abiding love for all things dance, and began her pre-professional dance training in Auburn Hills at Oakland University. While in their dance program Kathryn had the noted privilege of being a member of their Reparatory Dance Company, performing works by John Lehrer, Lori Eisenhower, Shane O’Hara, Michael Foley and Ginger Thatcher. Outside of the university, Kathryn also had the opportunity to perform a world premier work by Rodney A. Brown as a member of the Brown Dance Project. Wanting to expand her dance training even further, Kathryn then transferred to Western Michigan University, where she honed her craft working with many world-renowned choreographers including Arturo Fernandez and Jason McDole.
Since moving to Chicago, Kathryn has had the distinct pleasure of working with Esoteric Dance Project, assisting with their creative process during their residency at the Chicago Cultural Center, as well as performing in two world premieres for EPD’s winter concert Shift/Ed. As a member of Salty Lark Dance, Kathryn had the opportunity to dig deep into her background in modern dance, marrying Laban movement analysis with somatic integration. Performing in and around the Chicago area, she found this experience to be extremely fulfilling and is very happy to be able to bring her background to her work with Project Bound Dance. This will be Kathryn's 5th season performing with Project Bound Dance, she's very pleased about it.
