Kat Richter, MA is Executive Director of The Lady Hoofers, Philadelphia's first all-female tap company. She holds an MA in Dance Anthropology from London's Roehampton University and a BA in Dance and History from Goucher College. Since beginning her apprenticeship with the New Jersey Tap Ensemble at the age of nine, she has trained under Jason Samuels Smith, Chloe Arnold, Karen Calloway Williams, Paris Mann and the Ensemble's Artistic Director, Deborah Mitchell. She has presented research at the annual conferences of both the Congress on Research in Dance and the Society of the Dance History Scholars and writes for The Journal of Research in Dance Education, The Philadelphia Dance Journal, Dance Teacher Magazine and Dance Studio Life.
In 2005, she received a scholarship to Oxford University where she taught and choreographed several productions including Jane Austin's Emma. A regular performer at the London Tap Jam, Kat wrote her MA dissertation on the performance of tap's "national anthem," the Shim Sham Shimmy. Given Kat's training in anatomy and kinesiology, improvisation, and dance history, she strives to inspire her students through a variety of means, ranging from film clips of tap's legendary hoofers to in-class discussions and exercises aimed at improving students' musicality and confidence. She is on faculty at Burlington County College and although Kat studied ballet, modern, jazz, ballroom, flamenco and numerous social dance forms as an undergraduate, tap has always been her first love. Her student choreography has received numerous awards including the Sophisticated Elegance Award at Starpower and Overall High Score at Revolution National Talent Competition and her company was recently selected to perform in the Dance USA/Philadelphia Presenter's Showcase.
Ms. Kat teaches Beginner Tap, Intermediate Tap, Broadway Tap, Pre-Advanced Tap, and Advanced Tap.
