Kate Storr

Associate Lecturer for Music & Musical Theatre

Kate began her studies at two years of age, joining Imperial Classical Ballet, Tap Dance and Modern Theatre classes under the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. At the age of eleven, she was offered her first teaching assistants role, supporting her teacher in ballet: this then lead on to her first teaching and choreographic role within the school.

Whilst a student of dance, Kate also studied singing, the flute and classical piano and was fortunate enough to appear in Disneyland Paris and at the Barcelona Cathedral.

After gaining an award of Dance Leadership under the Sports UK Council and A-Level Dance at sixth form college, Kate went on to study musical theatre at the University of Chichester to gain a certificate of higher education (CertHE), where she played leading roles in performances and assessments.

Upon leaving university, Kate registered and qualified under the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing in Tap Dance, Modern Theatre and Imperial Classical Ballet, for whom she now teaches in many schools (including her own) and sixth form colleges, across Hampshire and West Sussex.

Whilst teaching is Kate’s main passion in life, she also works for Bloomsbury Publishing as a peer-reviewer when a book in her subject area is proposed.

Chichester was a large part of Kate’s education and she was delighted when asked to return to teach within the music department primarily as a tap tutor and associate lecturer. To further this experience, she is now undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education, aiming to gain the recognition of Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).
