Kathryn Sullivan performed with the Boston Ballet, Les Grands Ballet Canadians, Connecticut Ballet, and Les Ballet de Nancy in repertory from classical ballet to contemporary dance.

She has taught at Broadway Dance Center, Ballet Hispanico, La Guardia High School of Performing Arts, and has done master classes and judging for Professional Dance Teachers Association and Dance Masters of America.

Her choreography has been presented at Joyce Soho, Cunningham Studio, New Choreographers on Pointe, and commissioned by Barnard College. She was a co-director and choreographer for InnerLandscapes Dance Theater for seven seasons. Kathryn collaborates with Steps pianists on ballet class CDs, has written for dance publications, and directs educational dance DVDs for Insight Media.

As well as teaching at Steps on Broadway, Kathryn is on faculty at Barnard College at Columbia University, and Peridance.

Kathryn has a contemporary approach when teaching the principles of Ballet, making them applicable and accessible to all dance styles. Her classes focus on strengthening body placement and alignment as well as weight transfer, musicality, and how to maximize flexibility and rotation. Various choreographic elements are incorporated that challenge the dancers, and allow them to explore personal expression.

Always a lively, inspiring, and motivating atmosphere!
