a bit about me:
Natalie Pate is an Oregon-based performer, dance instructor, and choreographer. While she works as a full-time journalist and author, Natalie spends much of her free time on stage or in a studio.
She most recently played Sadie and Ella as a guest artist in Willamette University's film adaption of The Cradle Will Rock. Before that, she portrayed Sally Bowles in Cabaret at Pentacle Theatre in Salem, which earned her a nomination for Best Actress in a Musical for Broadway World's 2018 Regional Awards. Other credits include Winnifred in Once Upon a Mattress, Victoria the White Cat in Cats, and the title role in Peter Pan.
Natalie has previously worked as a ballet conditioning instructor for Willamette University football players, as well as a teacher of multiple styles to dancers of all ages at Starr Studios. She was busy choreographing Pentacle Theatre's planned production of Company just before the pandemic began. She hopes to enjoy live theatre again soon.
