Mary Kate began dancing at the age of 4 at Stoughton Center for the Performing Arts in Stoughton, WI. She has attended many competitions and conventions over the years, winning many awards and scholarships. She eventually added additional ballet classes to her training at Central Midwest Ballet in Middleton, WI, where her appreciation of ballet grew.
Mary Kate has had the opportunity to supplement her training through summer programs at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and Alonzo King LINES Ballet.
Mary Kate’s first exposure to Visceral was while attending Nick Pupillo’s class at Chicago Jazz Connection Jazz Camp in 2017. She then attended several teen workshops and summer intensives and fell in love with Visceral. Becoming a member of Visceral Studio Company is truly a dream come true, and she is honored to be able to learn from Nick both technically and artistically in the years to come.
