Personal Biography

Kate Corby is a contemporary choreographer, movement educator and performer. She has shown her work extensively in the Midwest and in New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Taiwan and Hungary, where she traveled as a Fulbright fellow. Kate has been an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 2008 and continues to create work with her company Kate Corby & Dancers. Her choreography has been called “ingenious” by the Chicago Reader, “jarringly beautiful” by the Isthmus and is consistently a Critics’ Pick in Time Out Chicago. Kate was also featured in Dance Magazine’s April 2011 issue as one of six choreographers “on the cusp of making waves in the larger dance world.” She completed her MFA in Dance at the University of Illinois at Urbana and received her undergraduate degree from Beloit College in Beloit, WI. In addition to teaching master classes nationally and internationally, she has served on the faculties of Beloit College, Columbia College Chicago and the Pedagogy Department of the Hungarian Dance Academy.
