Her distinctive brand of precise, smooth movement vocabulary coupled with polished design elements captures themes of intimacy inside of an identity-obsessed culture.

She has received commissions by leading West Coast dance companies, universities, institutions and galleries and is among Seattle’s top contemporary dance teachers, leading packed classes through her own brand of movement technique.** http://www.katewallich.com/#/
