Kathryn McCormick is one such passionate dancer you may recognize from Season 6 of “So You Think You Can Dance.” I got to see her in action last year at the Revolve Tour in Texas, and was inspired by both her moving performances and the story she shared about trusting in God’s plan and purpose for her life, especially in her journey of trying out for the show.

Kathryn also danced to the song “Who You Are” by Jessi J at Revolve. Here’s an in-studio clip that gives a closer look at her intensity and emotion:
