It's not JUST about dance.

yes, I am your child's dance teacher, but I am so much more than that
Katie Frego

Yes, I am your child's dance teacher. I teach them to count to eight and to start back at one again. I teach them to point their toes and straighten their arms, but I teach them so much more than that. I work with dancers sometimes from the age of two all the way up to 18. I am with them through their big life moments. I hear about their lives.

They are so excited when they show me how they can tie their shoes on their own. They tell me about the awards they get at school and all about their best friend's sleepover party. I am more than their dance teacher, I am the consistency that every child needs.

As a dance teacher, I am here to teach your kids more than just dance. I teach them to take turns, to respect their peers, to use their manners, and to be overall good people. I teach your child "mind over matter", and how to reach a goal. I watch your child grow from a toddler all the way up to a teenager. I love seeing them work hard for their accomplishments.

At the end of the day, my goal in teaching your children is not to see a perfect pointed foot, or a hyperextended leg. I don't care if they have they highest jump or the best tap sounds. My goal is to see them work hard to reach their highest potential. I want to see them grow as a dancer, but most importantly, I want to see them grow as their own individual.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
