Katherine Gorsuch's hybrid expression of movement is derived from the many dance influences in her life. She received her formal dance training at Ballet Hispanico in New York City. After graduating from Hunter College with a BA in Anthropology and Linguistics--a degree that infused her with wanderlust, a craving to learn more languages, and the desire to engage with different cultures through dance-- she had the opportunity to study flamenco in Madrid, tango in Buenos Aires, and aerial arts in Brazil. At 17, she began dancing tango in New York City. She initially partnered with Robin Thomas, teaching at several university tango clubs, (Princeton, Columbia, Yale..) and different dance schools in NYC. Since then, she has taught across the U.S, Europe, and Buenos Aires.
Her versatility has allowed her to work with a range of dance partners, of those recently including Marcelo "El Chino" Gutierrez, Andres Amarillo, & Oliver Kolker. During her last years in New York, she was a performer with the Malbec Tango House company. She is currently based in Berlin. If not dancing contemporary dance or training with circus aerial arts, she can be found teaching classes at Tangotanzen Macht Schön. Coming from a diverse background, Katherine believes in a well-rounded multidisciplinary form of training. Understanding one's body in one movement form enriches all others. Elements of these different movement techniques can be seen in her style of teaching.
