Katie Burks Founder, Executive Director

Katie’s lifelong passion for the performing arts has fostered the privilege of performing, teaching, collaborating, and creating dance, theatre, and interdisciplinary work across the United States and internationally. Katie began her foray into the field of humanitarian relief as a volunteer on the frontlines of areas affected by Hurricane Harvey (Texas) and Hurricane Irma (Florida). Now, she shares the fervent belief that the performing arts share a place at the center of humanitarian relief, disaster response, and crisis management. Katie founded Artists Sans Frontières to serve the millions of individuals affected by war, violence, conflict, and humanitarian crisis under the notion that dance, music, and theatre change lives. A proud native of Dallas, Texas, Katie is a graduate of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from Point Park University and a Master of Fine Arts in Choreography from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
