Dancing Dog - Team Photo

Meet the Dancing Dog Team 

Kathryn portrait


Kathryn was born and raised in Auburn and has been a long time entrepreneur and teacher locally.  She wanted to be more involved in her community and always wanted to own a business in Auburn and found Dancing Dog Productions.  She said to herself, “I can be a screen printer”, so she bought the business. 4 years later, she knew she couldn’t grow without better equipment and worked well with Special T’s and they merged to form a corporation that is better servicing the greater Auburn and Sacramento Area.


Sage has been in the screen printing industry for over 25 years.  He has done everything from beginning to end that has everything to do with decorating your garments.  His knowledge and expertise are invaluable to our production. With his background in screen printing and managing shops, he has come in and been a fabulous edition to our team.

Bill has been in the screen printing industry since 1992 when he purchased Special T’s and Sports in Sacramento. He grew a successful business, purchased the Mighty Press in 2005, and renamed it Special T’s and Sports. He has extensive knowledge of art and the screen printing process and has also been a staple in the Auburn Community for almost 20 years. He is our master ink mixer and can help with any type of art, garment, or printing questions.  Need a custom color, he has you covered.

Lora started Dancing Dog Productions in the early 1990’s.  She grew the business into a successful local staple of Auburn for over 25 years.  She sold the business to Kathryn in 2016 and they became fast friends and continued to work together after the purchase and since the merger. During her years as a screen printer she has seen many changes in the industry and her expertise is essential in the order taking process. Lora is our Merch Store expert and can guide you seamlessly through any situation you may have.

"Dancing Dog really came through for us by getting our shirts done on time, as promised, for an important video shoot.  The shirts are high quality and the printing of our logo was perfect. We'll definitely be using them to promote our brand going forward!"
