Laura Catherine Hilley began training at Mobile Ballet when she was three years old. As her passion for the art grew and her performance opportunities increased — under the artistic direction of Winthrop Corey, along with the training and nurturing of Pamela Thompson — she became singularly focused on dance.
After multiple summer intensives in New York City, first with American Ballet Theatre and then with The School of American Ballet, she relocated to Houston to train full-time with Houston Ballet Academy on merit scholarship. While there, she had numerous opportunities to perform works by Stanton Welch and Ben Stevenson with Houston Ballet.
She then became a member of Cincinnati Ballet, where she worked with choreographer Adam Hougland and toured with the company to The Kennedy Center. Some of her favorite reps include Val Caniparoli’s Lady of the Camellias, Victoria Morgan’s Cinderella, and Septime Webre’s Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Now in Houston, Laura Catherine dances with Uptown Dance Company. She teaches at Uptown and Houston Ballet. She often guest performs and teaches throughout the Houston community.

Katherine Thompson, a native of Mobile, danced professionally with Cincinnati Ballet and Alabama Ballet, and has guested with New Orleans Ballet Theater, Neglia Ballet in Buffalo, NY, The Patrick Notaro Dance Project in Cape Cod, MA, and Mobile Ballet.
Katherine began her ballet training with Carol Graham, and continued her formal ballet training under the direction of Winthrop Corey and Ann Duke. She danced the role of Lucy in Mr. Corey’s widely acclaimed world premiere of Dracula in 1998. While in high school, she attended summer intensives in New York City at The School of American Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and the Joffrey Ballet School. Katherine was also Mobile County’s Junior Miss 1999 and an Azalea Trail Maid.
Upon graduating from St. Paul’s Episcopal School, Katherine attended the Indiana University School of Music's Ballet Department on the Dean's Scholarship. Katherine graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a BA in Communication Management. She resides in Birmingham with her husband and two boys, and is on faculty at Briarwood Ballet and on the Board of Shelby County’s Distinguished Young Women.
