With this show they brought in legitimate Broadway dancers and at first I was kind of hesitant 'Okay, Gabrielle let's see if she can really dance and then she was out dancing me and all that stuff and I was like 'Oh, okay!'

Kathryn Burns is an Emmy award winning American dancer, actress and choreographer. She is a native of Dallas, Texas who graduated from Highland Park High School and went on to attend the University of Missouri. Eventually she moved to Los Angeles where she studied comedy improv with the Uptight Citizens Brigade. Burns combined her comedic talents with her background in dance to create humorous choreography. Her work can be seen in television shows, music videos and online web series. Some prominent examples includes choreography on "Key and Peele" and "Children's Hospital". During this time she worked with Rachel Bloom on the YouTube parody music video "Die When I'm Young". This collaboration led to her being hired to compose the dance sequences seen on Bloom's The CW network show "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" often working alongside assistant choreographer Dominique Kelley. She still produces the monthly show "Quick & Funny" at the Uptight Citizens Brigade in Hollywood. On September 11, 2016, Burns won the Emmy for "Outstanding Choreography" for her work on three different performances on "Crazy ex-Girlfriend" including the tap dance routine in "Settle For Me". In Season Two she appeared onscreen in the episode "Where Is Josh's Friend?" as one of Rebecca's background dancers.
