Nate Snyder, a lifetime resident of Gastonia, North Carolina, began dancing at Gaston Dance Theatre under the direction of Tammy Fox. After earning his BA in dance and movement studies from Emory University under the mentorship of Sally Radell and Greg Catellier, Nate joined the Core team after having previously served as the resources intern. Nate is an active member of the Atlanta arts community, working as a house manager for Theater Emory and a freelance technical designer and crew member. In addition to his passion for arts administration, Nate has deep love for dance education and works as a teaching assistant in the dance program at the North Carolina Governor’s School. He has also been privileged to serve as a trustee on the Gaston Dance Theatre board of directors since 2018. When he’s not working, you can find Nate binge watching his latest Netflix find or being way too competitive in board games with friends.
