Caitlin Lamb has been dancing since the age of four. She began professional ballet training at Kansas City Ballet School when she was thirteen. She studied ballet and pointe six days a week. She received supplemental training in flamenco, modern, jazz, classical variations, pas de deux, and pilates. She spent her summers studying intensively on scholarship at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, BalletMet Columbus, and Kansas City Ballet. While a student at KCBS, she was selected to perform and understudy with the professional company as a ginger, mirliton, waltz of the flowers, and snowflake in the Nutcracker.
After a traumatic injury in high school, Caitlin began redirecting her focus from a professional career towards becoming a quality ballet teacher. She has taught ballet and pointe at MelRoe’s School of Dance since 2013. Her favorite part of teaching is watching her students’ growth throughout the course of the year. She has loved having the opportunity to choreograph numerous pieces for the annual recital.
Caitlin is a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a double major in Economics and Political Science. She is currently studying for her bachelor’s in nursing at Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences. Her passion for children follows her from the studio to her job at Children’s Mercy Hospital where she is a nurse technician on their burn and trauma unit.
