We want to take the time to thank Catherine Gaudreau for her instruction and choreography at Ballet Tennessee.  We appreciate the time and the expertise she has given our students over the last several years! We respect her wishes to spend more time with her family and with her full-time job at BlueCross BlueShield. We look forward to having her back at BT in the future for both teaching and choreography.
