Caitlyn Gee (She/Hers) was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1999. She grew up in Memphis and moved to Indiana to study at the Indiana Ballet Conservatory with her mentor. She attended Carmel High School and her sophomore year St. Mary’s Episcopal School. During the first semester of her junior year, she decided to study dance abroad, in Marbella, Spain, for the first half of the school year. After her first semester, she returned to Indiana, attended Laurel Springs School, and finished her high school degree online. After graduating from high school, she decided to take a gap year to join Hubbard Dance Street Chicago in their Professional Program and began interning at the Buckman Theatre. After living in Chicago for a little while, she decided to apply to Columbia College Chicago for Arts Management in order to stay active in the management side of the dance community. During her freshman year in college, she worked as the Children’s Dance Director at the Woman’s Athletic Club and as a Special Events Intern at the Lyric Opera. After Coronavirus caused the school to switch to online learning, she moved back in with her parents for a month and a half to quarantine before moving back to her Chicago apartment. Currently she is doing school remotely and is working as a campus ambassador at Columbia College Chicago. She is expected to graduate in 2023.
