Katherine Giacoletti has been dancing her whole life, training in classical ballet, jazz, and modern from a very young age. She discovered Scottish dancing in college and never looked back! Scottish dance has been her passion ever since, and along the way she also took up English country dancing and contra dancing. She takes great joy in dancing with her husband Justin and daughter Elena, and in the communities of friends they have all found through dance.
Katherine has been teaching Scottish country dancing for over 20 years, including at workshops and camps up and down the Eastern seaboard. She also studies and competes in highland dance (along with Elena), and is a member of ScotDance USA (formerly FUSTA, the association of U.S. highland dance teachers & adjudicators) with her highland teaching certificate from the British Association of Teachers of Dance (BATD).
When she has to be not dancing, Katherine supports the habit as a pharmaceutical manufacturing statistician in the Philadelphia area.
