Katy Tate is a true powerhouse in the world of entertainment. I am thrilled to have her on the show, and what makes this interview even more special is that we recorded it just after her recent triumph at the World Choreography Awards. Katy is a multifaceted talent - she wears many hats as a Director, Choreographer, Producer, and Master Teacher. Her impressive resume includes an array of remarkable projects. She served as the Associate Director for Jennifer Lopez's "It's My Party" Tour and was the Producer for "Holidays with the Houghs," featuring Derek and Julianne Hough. She also co-directed the World of Dance Live Tour and worked as the Supervising Choreographer for Season 4 of World Of Dance. Katy's creative expertise extends to high-profile events like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Disney's Holiday Celebration, and Jennifer Lopez's MTV Video Vanguard Performance, among many others. Notably, she served as the Associate Director for the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2020. For seven years, Katy played a vital role as Dance Master at The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil, and she's also made her mark on productions like Mystere, Zumanity, O, and La Nouba. One of Katy's most significant personal achievements is the creation of her speaking series, "HUMANN Movement." This series focuses on the growth of emotional intelligence and mental toughness in the next generation of industry professionals. What's even more exciting is that Katy is currently hard at work on the opening show for the F1 race coming to Las Vegas, and she'll be returning to the podcast in a future episode to tell us more about this exciting project.
