Kathryn Renee McCormick is a contemporary dancer from Augusta, Georgia where she trained at her home studio Augusta West for national dance competitions. It was during her junior year of high school that she finally realized that her dream was to become a professional dancer. After graduating, she attended the Tremaine Dance Convention’s Apprenticeship Company where she learned diverse styles of dance. Kathryn was lucky enough to join Tremaine in Costa Rica in 2008 for their Jazz Fest event where she danced and assisted in workshops while also participating in mission aid work with the program Boy with a Ball ministries in Santo Domingo.

Later that year, Kathryn received her first professional movie role in the Fame remake as a supporting dancer, prompting her move to LA to pursue more opportunities. There she worked with choreographers such as Lillian Manansala, Mecca Vazie Andrews, and Tessandra Chavez. Kathryn traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland with Urban Poets, a performance company where she danced in Edinburgh’s renowned “Fringe Festival” in the production of “Scribble.” She has also modeled for StagewearLA’s costume catalog.

In 2009, McCormick joined Season 6 of SYTYCD (paired with Jonathan "Legacy" Perez) and placed third overall, being eliminated December 16, 2009. She ended her run as the top female dancer of the entire season, receiving the most votes for the females in the finale. A recent highlight is the opportunity Kathryn had to perform at the 82nd Academy Award for Adam Shankman.

Kathryn will return as an All-Star on Season 7 of SYTYCD.
