Katie Martin, a Grayslake native and a star of the CW network’s ballet reality series “Breaking Pointe,” will be visiting Lisle’s Contempo Dance Academy next Wednesday evening to teach an class to aspiring area dancers.
“I met Katie during a ballet intensive in New Mexico last month, and she is not only a fabulous dancer but also an extremely popular celebrity on the show,” Contempo proprietor Kimberly Kovacevich told Patch. “This is such exciting news for Lisle, as Contempo has grown from 27 students when we opened in 2011 to almost 150 students today.
“I'm glad to be able to bring Katie Martin in to help with Contempo students' dance training, but I am opening this special event to other dancers in the area who don't study at Contempo but would benefit from this Master Class.”
The class will be held from 7:00-8:30 p.m. on Sept. 11 at 4723 Main St., Lisle 60532. The cost of the class is $30, and preregistration is required as the class size is limited.
