Miss Kayla’s dance journey began at her mother’s dance studio, Miss Chris School of Dance, at the age of 2 where she took classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, and Pointe. She was a member of the studio’s competition team which, at the age of 18, she became the team’s director where she has won numerous high score and specialty awards for her choreography. Her students have also received many scholarships and have gone on to perform on Broadway and dance for Philadelphia Soul Dance Team, Jr. Sixers Dancers as well as the Philadelphia Flyers Ice Girls. Miss Kayla participated in a five year teacher training program and began teaching full time in 2003. Her true passion for dance didn’t erupt until she started going to conventions where she has learned from choreographers such as Brian Friedman, Jamal Sims, Tyce Diorio, Travis Wall, LaurieAnn Gibson, Stacey Tookey, Joe Lanteri, Joey Dowling, Wade Robson and more. Her professional studies include a BA in Hospitality and Tourism Mgmt.
