Katie Hildreth has always loved music and dancing. Even from a very early age, she was found spending many hours dancing and singing every where she went! Katie grew up in the Salt Lake Valley and Tucson, AZ. She took dance lessons from Dance, Etc., Tracy's Dance Academy and Centre Stage Dance, where she first started teaching when she was 16 years old.
Katie attended college at BYU-Idaho and continued to grow in her passion for teaching dance. She taught dance to children in the after-school programs in Rexburg, ID and had a small studio in St. Anthony, ID. Katie also started the dance team at South Fremont High School and served as choreographer for community theater productions of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and "Crazy For You".
After a few moves, Katie finally came to Idaho Falls in 2007 and opened Step It Up Dance, which she ran for 4 years. She took a break from her studio to raise and support her four beautiful daughters but continued to teach tap classes privately and for Vogue Dance Company. In 2016, Katie received her fitness certification with AFAA. Most recently, Katie served as the producer of IFYAC's production of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", Stage Manager for IFOT's production "Cosi Fan Tutte" and Choreographer for IFYAC's "James and the Giant Peach Jr.". Katie has been teaching dance for 19 years and is so excited to, once again, begin sharing her love for dance and musical theatre with the community in
