Looking back, it isn’t that surprising.
From enjoying song and dance from a young age, not fitting the profile for a ballet dancer, and joining both a Hungarian Folk Dance company and a Scottish bagpipe band before the age of 15, Kate has always had a taste for making an audience cheer, laugh, and “ewww…”.
A classic Meyers-Briggs ENTP, Kate has dabbled in many interesting hobbies and art forms, including becoming a pirate at a renaissance fair, developing a teenage drag king persona, coaching a collegiate synchronized swimming team, and memorizing popular music video choreography down to the last hip thrust.
In 2013, after a large life event and enduring a personal trauma, Kate dove deep into the world of pole dance, burlesque, aerial hammock, and various other circus art to find themselves* again. This hobby has turned into a calling and Kate E. Gaga decided in early 2015 to start making the transition from weekend circus performer to full-blown explorer of the worlds of performance, social justice, and queerness and the many ways they interact with one another.
