Cathy Sipe attended University of Akron, where she began touring
as an electrician with Ohio Ballet. She spent several years
alternating ballet tours with local freelancing, most notably with
Great Lakes Theatre Festival and Vincent Lighting. In search of
stability, she became the main stage light board operator at
Players Theatre Columbus, OH, with summers spent as Master
Electrician at American Dance Festival in Durham, NC. Encouraged by
life in the South, she moved to Atlanta, GA, and freelanced in all
areas of live performance, including conventions, concerts,
theatre, dance, and a ridiculous number of corporate parties.
After moving back north for family reasons, Cathy joined the
administrative staff of IATSE Local 30. She continues her freelance
work with Dance Kaleidoscope and Jordan Academy of Dance.
