KathleenOwensKathleen (O'Connor) Owens began her training at Barbara's Conservatory of Dance and received countless performing opportunities with Ballet Midwest. She continued her dance education at the University of Kansas, where she graduated with high honors in 2004. Post college, Kathleen co-founded two modern dance collectives (Bowery Dancers and Band of Dancers) and performed with Lawrence Arts Center's resident dance group (940 Dance Company) under the direction of Susan Warden for two seasons. Kathleen spent two years exploring and immersing herself in the dance scene in New York City, after which time she happily returned to the Midwest to continue her enjoyment of the Arts closer to her home and family. This is Kathleen's sixth year (post graduation) as an instructor at Barbara's; she currently teaches advanced ballet and contemporary pointe.
