Meet the Water Ballet Instructors

Katherine McCarthy – Head Coach

I am a junior at UW- Madison where I am studying psychology and neurobiology. I’m a graduate of Middleton High School where I was in band, drama club and choir. I also figure skate and  teach lessons in the Madison area.

I am looking forward to working with all of the different kids this year! I adore teaching kids new and exciting material. I was a part of the Water Ballet program for seven years at High Point Pool. My favorite memory is clamoring for the best spots to watch all of the other acts during recital!

 


Caitlin Murphy

This fall, I will be a senior at Memorial High School. Last year, I played volleyball and gymnastics for Memorial. Prior to high school, I did gymnastics for eight years at a local gym.

This is my third year as a Water Ballet Instructor; however, I have been in the Water Ballet program for seven years. I also did swim team and dive team at High Point. I am very excited to be working at the pool this summer, as I have always pictured myself here someday!

 


Mary McCarthy

In the fall,  I will be a freshman at Northwestern where I will study biomedical engineering on a pre-med track. I am a graduate of Middleton high school where I ran cross country and played lacrosse. I was on Swim Team at High Point for 7 years, Dive Team for 3 years, and a part of the Water Ballet program for 7 years as well.

This is my second year as a Water Ballet instructor. I am excited  to meet all of the kids in the program and to teach my students something I loved so much when I was younger.

This fall I will be a junior at Memorial High School, where I run cross country. I have also participated in dance prior to high school.

This is my first year at the pool, and even though it is my first year teaching water ballet I am excited to use my background in dance when choreographing. I enjoy teaching and can’t wait to meet everyone!
