Kaitlin McCarthy is a dance artist operating in Seattle, WA since 2010.

She grew up dancing in Ann Arbor, Michigan and continued dancing on the East coast, where she graduated summa cum laude from Mt Holyoke College. In Seattle she has danced with over a dozen local artists and has choreographed work for Velocity Dance Center, On the Boards, Evoke Productions, BOOST Dance Festival, SOIL Gallery, SIDF, and her self-produced show, HOT MESS.


Improvisation and experimentation are driving forces in her work, guided by intuition, intellectualism, and a midwestern work ethic.
