Katie Squirrell (2021)

Katie Squirrell is a Suffolk-based young choreographer who is in her early stages of making contemporary dance work. Charlotte has helped her in finding her artistic voice, figuring out what she wants to say with her work and refining her creative process. Katie has since choreographed for SPILL Festival of Performance and showcased several of her pieces at Dance East in Ipswich. She aspires to begin full time training at a dance conservatoire next year and pursue a career creating meaningful work.

“The advice and guidance Charlotte has given me will stick with me throughout my career, she has challenged me to reassess everything I thought I knew about making dance and I have seen huge growth in the quality and depth of my work since.”

Mentoring organised through the SPILL Young Creators programme.
