After reading English at Cambridge University, Katie graduated from London Contemporary Dance School in 2006 and formed her contemporary dance company Made By Katie Green in the same year. Made By Katie Green is now a multi award-winning company (including St Hugh’s Foundation Award 2009, Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award 2007, Pyramid Award for Contemporary Dance 2006) and Katie has received support from Arts Council England through the Grants for the Arts scheme since 2008.

Katie’s current Dancing in Museums project will tour to museums, heritage sites and theatres throughout 2013 and 2014, enabling her to expand upon her portfolio of site-specific work, which has also included commissions for the London Festival of Architecture/Grimshaw Architecture Practice, the Royal Academy of Arts and Cambridge Senate House. Prior to Dancing in Museums, Katie's most recent choreographic work Matters of Life and Death toured across the UK and was part of The Place’s Spring Loaded festival in 2012.

Katie was an Associate Artist at Dance4 (Nottingham) from 2007-9, Regional Artist at Déda (Derby) from 2010-11, and in October 2010 she was also selected as one of the first UK Young Artists, presenting her choreography at the inaugural UKYA01 event. Prior to that, her work Lost and Found (2009) received the award for Best Dance Production at the Buxton Fringe Festival in 2009 and was also a Guardian Pick of the Week. Katie's earlier choreography was nominated for the New Trends prize at the Burgos International Choreography Competition in 2007.

Katie’s most recent touring work Matters of Life and Death was part of The Place’s Spring Loaded 2012 festival and recent choreographic commissions include her site-specific response to Chris Wilkinson’s architectural installation From Landscape to Portrait at the Royal Academy of Arts.

As well as directing Made By Katie Green, Katie works as a performer, choreographer and teacher/mentor across the UK, including working as a mentor for the Youth Dance England Young Creatives scheme since 2009 (see www.greenbeandance.co.uk for an indication of the range of Katie's teaching experience; Katie holds a Diploma for Dance Teaching and Learning (Children and Young People)). She has also worked with Cie. Willi Dorner(Austria) since 2011 as a performer in the company’s internationally touring work above, under, inbetween, and for UK-based collective Casson & Friends since 2013. In 2011 Katie was invited to join the St Hugh's Foundation as their newest Trustee, and in 2012 she received a Linbury Bursary to develop her arts leadership skills by attending a Clore Leadership Programme short course.
