Hey there! I'm Katrena, the Owner & Creator of Different Drummer Dance. I'm a self-growth junkie, and passionate about teaching dance from the inside out. Even with 20+ years of experience as a dancer and teacher, I’ve never felt like a typical ballerina. I love ballet, but ballet hasn’t always loved me back. Staring at myself in the ballet classroom mirror often left me wondering if I was too much, or not enough. Now I'm creating the studios, dance education, and communities I wish I had as a young dancer. I believe that anybody who has a body can (and should!) experience the joy of dance, that raw cookie dough is THE BEST, and that living our best lives happens one dance party at a time.
