Kate Adams is a Boulder native who began dancing at Boulder Ballet at the age of 3. In Colorado, she has had the chance to compete in the Denver Ballet Guild’s Young Dancers Competition where she received 2nd place in 2010 and 6th place in 2014. As she rose through the school, Kate also had opportunities to attend summer programs such as The Harid Conservatory, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, and Texas Ballet Theater. After graduating high school, she moved to Georgia to study with the Atlanta Ballet. In her two years with Atlanta, she was given the opportunity both years to perform in the snow and flower corps alongside the Atlanta Ballet company in John McFall’s The Nutcracker. Kate has since moved back to Boulder where she is excited to continue working with Boulder Ballet while pursuing a Health Sciences degree online through the University of South Dakota. This is Kate’s second season as an Apprentice Dancer with Boulder Ballet.
