I had the honor in dancing with this beautiful company from September 2010 to July 2012, and it was life changing for me. Not only did I grow as a dancer, but as an individual. What I loved the most about this company, is that I was able to partake in a mission that was so much greater than me. The Artistic Director, Katherine Gant, always did such a beautiful job at presenting her God inspired work to the masses. Not only is she a powerful force and vessel that God uses in the dance industry, but her excellent character, integrity, professionalism, and her ability to treat her fellow dancers and communicate to them in such a truthful but yet patient and loving manner, reflected her maturity level in teamwork. Katherine was always even-tempered, and handled every problem with such maturity. Every performance rehearsal and performance was done in a rather smooth, sufficient, drama free, and professional manner. Katherine has an eye for detail and is a rather persistent and hard worker, as she puts her all in making sure that each performance is done with perfection; every project is strictly organic. I am thankful for the company's patience in allowing me to stumble and grow as a dancer at that time, and Katherine's openness to express the Father's heart towards me during that season of my life. I always carry a piece of the company in my heart wherever I go as I continue in my journey. Since then I have grown so much, and in the places where I was not sure, not the most secure, or weak technique-wise as a dancer has been fully healed and is being made stronger. And I have them to thank in allowing me to grow in those areas at that time. Katherine is an excellent steward of the vision that God has given her. The Father is indeed proud of her works. Love you Katherine and Refuge!
