Alum update: Katie Critchlow, Dancer At Ballet West

We received word of another CYT Alum success story. CYT San Diego Alum Katie Critchlow is currently a dancer at Ballet West!

Katie was involved in Tri-City’s CYT- her last performance was “Lil” in Annie. It wasn’t long before her total focus became ballet. She graduated from high school in 2003, and moved to Seattle, WA to dance for Pacific Northwest Ballet. From 2005 to present, she is a company dancer for Ballet West located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“Katie has been fortunate these past 5 years to not only perform with such a wonderful company in SLC, but also guest with them at the Aspen Dance Festival, the Kennedy Center, and most recently in the Chicago Dance Festival at Millenium Park in front of an audience of 10,500,” said Sue Critchlow, Katie’s mother.

“Her experience with CYT and love for the stage helped her with her present career. Great memories and great experience for a future she could never have imagined!”
