Katelyn Trei

I was born in Sioux Falls and continue to call this city my home. I started my dance career and my journey at the ripe young age of 10 with the Just for Kix dance studio. After two years, I decided to change studios and showed up at Midwest Dance Center. For the next several years I experimented with different styles of dance to find my groove.  It really started to come together when I tried out for the competitive senior team.  Wow, we won three National Champion titles for senior Lyrical small group and Grand Champions for senior Hip Hop.

In 2014/2015 I 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, I decided to travel a different route and became a dance teacher at Dynamic Cheer & Dance in Brandon.  I concentrated on the Mini and Youth Hip Hop/Jazz teams there and traveled with the competitive teams as an assistant coach.

Sometimes life comes full circle for whatever reason and I found myself at the doorsteps of Midwest Dance Center but this time as a coach.  It was at MDC that I found true passion for teaching and choreographing exceptional routines.  I have had such a great time with all the competitive Lyrical teams and watching everyone grow as dancers.

In my free time, I like pushing myself with challenging workouts and choreographing short Hip Hop and Lyrical-Hip Hop combos. The lessons I have learned have been invaluable in my life and given me so many great friendships.  I want each and every dancer to have such a wonderful experience with dance just like I have had and continue to have. MDC has been a wonderful opportunity for me to continue with dance and to pass my love of dance on to others!
