I am a classically trained dancer with 20 years experience in performance. I have always been passionate about historic costumes and was introduced to historic dance while getting my degree from Ga. State University. I am currently the director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. I've performed, taught and choreographed for performances on stage, at historic events and in the film industry for the last 10 years.
Historic Dance can run the gamut between beginning level dances up to professional level performance. I can tailor your lesson to fit your needs. The most popular lesson at the moment is the 1920's Charleston. I can also offer lessons in popular social dances from the Renaissance up through the 1960's.

I have had the honor of knowing Kat Nagar for over 5 years. She is a most patient teacher, teaching me everything from 18th-century court dance to 1920s swing.
I highly recommend her as a resource to teach all levels.

Kat Nagar is a wonderful dance instructor with expertise in a wide range of dance styles. She is patient and helpful, explains things clearly, like breaking down step patterns in a way that even the most beginner dancer can understand, while at the same time keeping pace and flow moving so classes are vibrant and interesting for all levels.

Kat Has a vast knowledge of dances of all different periods. She’s taught me dances from the 1700s and 1800s for museum events, and on short notice! She is very professional and encourages more from your performance. With minimal lessons, she will have you performing correctly and properly. I would definitely choose her for a dance teacher.
