The amount of people entering the competitive dancing industry from all different age groups has made it much harder to make it big. Those who make it as a dancer must be extremely focused and dedicated to their craft. Katie Couch is the Michigan Born dancer and actress that has taken the industry by storm with her well-developed skills at such a young age. Katie was born in Michigan, USA on March 23, 2007. Her older sister, Mackenzie Couch, and identical twin, Kameron Couch, are both experienced dancers as well. Katie started dancing at age seven and it immediately sparked her creative and expressive side. She began dancing at her local rec classes and after some time she worked her way up to competitive style dancing. Even though she has become a large icon in the industry she still lives life just like any normal teenager.
Katie is at school from about 8 am to 3:30 pm and then she goes to dance practice from 4 to sometimes as late as 9:30. It is very challenging for Katie to have such a long day and still go home to do homework and study, she says it is the most challenging part of her career. Thankfully for Katie, she has the necessary amount of passion and dedication to manage such a busy dance career in conjunction with her schoolwork. She is most recognized for her performance with Project 21 and the Westside Dance Project. Back in 2017, she was a featured dancer in DJ Snake’s, “A Different Way”, music video. She also made an appearance in a Kesha music video in 2019. The reason that she puts in countless hours of hard work and practice is because of the feeling she gets when she is on stage. Once she steps foot on stage all the things in her mind seem to fade away and all she focuses on is performing.
Since her body takes a toll from all the performing she does it is crucial that she meets with a trainer so that he can perform muscle recovery and manage her health. She has been able to stay focused and on track with the inspiration of both her favorite actress, Selena Gomez, and her mother. It is difficult to ignore all the haters online but Katie says that thanks to her confidence she is able to stay motivated and focused. She still has many fruitful years ahead of her and plans on being apart of some big projects but her ultimate goal is to be a dancer for Taylor Swift.
