Kathryn Hoerlein

Kathryn HoerleinKathryn started swing dancing in January 2007. She immediately fell in love with the adrenaline rush she got from swing and began teaching that summer. Now, she says that her favorite part of dancing is the connection made when she had an amazing dance with a perfect stranger. In order to become a better dancer and instructor, she had attended events across the country such as Southern Belle Swing Bash, Atlanta Varsity Showdown, Midwest Lindyfest, Lindy Focus and others. Kathryn won the 2011 Intermediate/Advanced Jack and Jill Competition at Atlanta Varsity Showdown, was also a "Pro" dancer for Dancing Stars of East Alabama in 2011. In 2012, she placed third in the Balboa division at SOLA in Orlando, FL and came in third place in the Advanced Strictly Lindy Division at Atlanta Varsity Showdown.

Kathryn has lived in Auburn her whole life and is now attending Auburn University as an Industrial and Systems Engineering student. She is also currently a co-op at Disney World in their Industrial Engineering department. She has also been working at Marble Slab Creamery for the past five years. She is heavily involved in the Auburn University Swing Dance Association as an instructor, President, and Event Coordinator.
