Katie Smentek dancing with Travis Schafer
Dance Style: Tap
Dr. Katie Smentek is performing with dance pro, Travis Shafer. They will be performing a tap dance style this evening.
Katie’s dance story started when she was three years old in creative movement class, skipping at the downtown mall. She notes that it continued for 12 years of “back row, ½ step behind, eyes on my neighbor recitals.” She believes that she owes her dad for all those lessons, and for making him sit through the early performances. Outside of work at the Mankato Clinic, Katie is active as the Board Chair at the Children’s Museum of Southern MN, Mankato Clinic Board and Foundation, YWCA Woman of Distinction, an Adaptive Ski instructor and a volunteer at Loyola Catholic School.
