Catherine Zink

Dance Teacher

Del Valle High School


I was born and raised in Austin Texas, I started dancing at the age of 3 at Barbra Lynn Dance Studio and never stopped. I performed with the Footnotes Dance Company, competing in many state competitions. I attended Austin High School where I served as a Junior Lieutenant and then Captain of the Red Jackets. While on Red Jackets, I grew as a person, as a dancer, and learned more of my passion for dancing, performing and teaching others. From a very early age I knew I wanted to show my love of dance to others and be a teacher. After high school I attended Texas State University, where I majored in Dance Education. After graduating from Texas State I was hired to teach dance at Del Valle High School. I have been teaching at Del Valle going on 7 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am honored to be able to call myself the Director of the Cardinal Belles and Cardettes dance team. These young ladies are truly an exceptional group of talented, hardworking and dedicated girls that I am blessed to be able to call my extended family.
