Kate “Mama Bear” Ramsey
High-spirited and graceful, Kate has been dancing since she received a pair of ballet slippers at age 2. Starting formal classes when she was 4 years old Kate has performed, taught and competed in ballet, Scottish Highland Dancing and piano for over 13 years. Growing up Kate found herself enamored of the jazz music and dancing embodied in old movies, but thought she only yearned for a bygone time, never dreaming that the art form was alive and well. Shortly after completing her degree in nursing, Kate stumbled upon Jonathan Lindsey’s swing dance night at the Duce, discovered the world of joy and life-giving movement contained in swing dancing and roots vernacular jazz, and hasn’t looked back. When not dancing, Kate likes to…oh nevermind, she’s usually dancing.
