Dance is one of those art forms I’m always in awe of, how the body is the instrument/voice/canvas that can express so much passion and tell stories where words aren’t necessarily needed. Kathryn McCormick is one such passionate dancer you may recognize from Season 6 of “So You Think You Can Dance.”
I got to see her in action last year at the Revolve Tour in Texas (it is an amazing conference for teen girls that I was able to volunteer at), and was inspired by both her moving performances and the story she shared about her journey of trying out for the show. I was also inspired enough to take ballet classes this Fall, and believe me when I say it was fun but wasn’t easy; I admire Kathryn’s elegance and natural grace in dance.
