Kate Spanos  §  Dancer, Scholar, Developer, and Traveler

dancer.I am a dancer, trained in Irish dance and experienced in a variety of other dance and movement genres from around the world, including Brazilian capoeira and West African dance.

scholar.I am a PhD candidate in Performance Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. My current research interests include national performance (music and dance), cultural identity formation, and Irish, African, and Caribbean studies (especially when these cultures intersect).

developer.I have worked in the past as a web developer/designer and I still enjoy coding websites from time to time.

traveler.I like to keep moving (dance!), learning (scholarship!), and growing (development!).
