Meet The Instructors


Kate Padilla,

Kate started Irish Dancing as an adult, after her first child was born, as a "break" from mothering.  She continued dancing through pregnancies, toddlers, and homeschooling!  Kate danced as a Champ level dancer, competing both locally as well as at the Western Region Oireachtas, as both a soloist and Ceili Team dancer.  She has five children, all of whom have danced at one point, as well as a Master's in School Social Work.  Both her dance and life experience help her to instruct both young dancers and adult dancers, alike.
