KATHERINE HOOPER | OWNER
For nearly 20 years, critically acclaimed dancer, choreographer and educator Katherine Hooper has made an indelible mark on the lives of her students, her dancers, and her community. As artistic director of BoSoma Dance Company and owner of the BoSoma School of Dance in Hamilton and Georgetown, MA, her mission has always been clear: to provide a positive, inspiring environment where students, performers, and the audience are free to explore dance as a vehicle to learn more about the world around them, to explore their own identity and to approach life, music or art in a different way.
STEPHANIE BOISVERT | DIRECTOR
Stephanie Boisvert received the bulk of her dance training at Melissa Hoffman Dance Center in Hudson, NH. As a teenager she had the opportunity to travel to Namibia, Africa on outreach missions, performing and teaching in schools throughout the country, which ignited her passion for community dance education.
