Dance Department Teaching Faculty
Kaitlin Shreckhise began her dancing career on the Eastern Shore of Virginia at Eastern Shore’s Own Art Center (ESO), a studio and dance department very similar to that of Wayne Center for the Arts. There, she studied and trained intensively in classical and contemporary ballet for 15 years. Prior to college, she attended Richmond Ballet’s summer intensive on scholarship and participated in many master classes and auditions, including class with Finis Jhung. She auditioned and was accepted into Studio Maestro’s summer intensive (now known as Manhattan Youth Ballet) and participated in class and auditions with The Joffrey Ballet and School of American Ballet. During her time at Virginia Tech, she was a member of La Fusion Dance team, and it was also during her senior year of college that she began what would become a six year tenure as Ballet Director, faculty member and choreographer at Dance.tech Performing Arts Studio in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Shreckhise just recently moved to Ohio in October of 2018 with her husband, Jake. She looks forward to sharing her love for teaching and passion for dance with the students and families of WCA.
