Katie Murray joins the team of instructors

Posted on April 2, 2018 · Posted in latest news, Uncategorized

We are delighted that Katie Murray has joined us as a Gyrotonic Instructor.

Born in Ayrshire, Katie began her dance training at the Janice Marshall School of Dance. Katie went on to become a Junior Associate at Scottish Ballet before being educated at the Dance School of Scotland where she studied Ballet, Modern and Tap dance. In 2012, Katie was accepted into the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland on their BA Modern Ballet course.

After graduating Katie was invited to join Northern Ballet’s Graduate Professional Programme where she danced numerous roles with the company. Katie also performed classical and neo-classical works in Germany and the UK with JSLN Dance Company.  During her time as a dancer Katie came to value the importance of strength and conditioning training which led her to take an interest in the Gyrotonic system.  Deciding that her passion lay outside of a performing career Katie decided to retrain as a Gyrotonic instructor and is looking forward to joining the team at Penny Withers Studio.
