Meet Luvabull Catherine R

Hi, I'm 22 years old, I am a full-time student at DePaul University, originally from Palatine, Illinois and my friends call me Cat.

Dance experience

Since the age of four I have taken tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop and tumbling classes at various dance studios. In junior high school I was also on a competition dance teams known as the Palatine Strutters. We traveled all over for different competitions and even competed in Orlando, Florida at the Wide World of Sports. In high school I was on the cheerleading team at St. Viator High School. By my senior year I was captain of the varsity team. I also cheered in college on a co-ed all-star team.

Lifetime goal

You never know where life is going to take you, but to know that I am happy and enjoying whatever I am doing is definitely my lifetime goal.

Three words that describe me are

Unique, vivacious, honest

Quote to live by

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me."

Advice to young dancers

When I was little I wanted to be part of the Junior Luvabull organization, unfortunately I never got the opportunity. I vowed that I would be a Luvabull when I grew up, and I did. Follow your dreams and never let anyone get you down. Dreams do come true.
