Katelyn Trei was born in Sioux Falls and continues to call this city her home. She started her dance career and journey at the ripe young age of 10 with the Just for Kix dance studio. After two years of finding her dance passion, she found herself at the doorsteps of Midwest Dance Center. For the next several years she experimented with different styles of dance to find her groove. And then she joined the MDC competitive senior team. Wow, that team won three National Champion titles for senior lyrical small group and Grand Champions for senior hip hop.
In 2014/2015 she attended South Dakota State University and danced with their competitive dance team that eventually competed at Nationals in Florida. As with many things in life, she decided to continue down a different route and became a dance teacher at Dynamic Cheer & Dance in Brandon. She concentrated on the Mini and Youth Hip Hop/Jazz teams and traveled with the competitive teams as an assistant coach.
Just like years before, she soon found herself at the doorsteps of Midwest Dance Center but this time as a coach. It was at MDC that she found her passion for teaching and choreographing exceptional routines. Katelyn is currently teaching Youth, Junior, and Senior level lyrical classes as well as choreographing and coaching for the competitive dance teams.
In her free time, she likes pushing herself with challenging workouts and choreographing short Hip Hop and Lyrical-Hip Hop combos. She has always had such a love for dance and being on a team. The lessons she has learned have been invaluable in her life and have given her so many great friendships. Katelyn Trei cherishes the chance to pass on these wonderful opportunities and life lessons. MDC has been a wonderful opportunity to continue with dance, to pass on her love of dance, and to enjoy a studio she has called her home for so many years.
