Katy Pomelov’s love for movement began very young. At the age of 4, she began studying Ballet in her native Russia and later developed a passion for Modern Dance after emigrating to the United States. She has also studied Jazz, Hip Hop and various forms of ethnic dance. Currently, she is studying Modern Jazz Blues with Elvia Marta and Bayan Jamay at ODC Dance Commons as well as Modern Dance with Anne-Rene Petrarca at San Francisco Dance Center and Dana Lawton at Shawl Anderson Dance Center.

In 2003, Katy decided to add fire performance to her movement vocabulary and began performing professionally. She is now recognized for making innovative performance pieces that blend an assortment of movement forms with technical tool expertise. In addition to Copper Lantern, she also performs with Fire Pixie.
