About the Instructors

  • Katie Kump - Creative Movement Instructor
    Katie Kump - Creative Movement Instructor

    Katie Kump believes that the end of all education is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. She is grateful to her home church in Peachtree City that prioritized wholly embodied worship for children through signing, singing, interpretive ballet, and musical theater performances. Katie danced for 8 years with the Georgia Youth Ballet and has enjoyed various seasons of both dance lessons and fitness classes ever since. After graduating from Georgia Tech, she became a full time nanny and has been investing in young children since 2009, most recently as a homeschooling mom. Katie's husband, Stephen, grew up in Columbus, and they were thrilled to move their 3 children next door to Grandmom & Granddaddy Kump in 2021. She joins Studio Elevare with awe and gratitude at such an incredible opportunity to participate in what God is doing through Clement Arts.
