Kayla Healey began dancing with Dance Management / TDTA at the age of five. She continued to dance with the studio as a student until her high school graduation, dancing for 13 years. During that time she learned many different styles of dance, such as ballet, tap, hip hop, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and musical theater. Her favorite type of dance to perform is lyrical. Kayla has performed in school productions and often received featured dancing roles in the shows. She began assistant teaching at the studio in her early years of high school. As a result she grew to love the art of teaching dance. She is now a junior in college at STAC studying for her degree in communications. Ever since graduating high school she has been an instructor at TDTA and has taught a variety of classes such as ballet, hip hop, jazz and tap. She is very excited at the opportunity to teach more styles of dance in the near future. Over the years she has been an assistant competition coach for the younger TDTA Company Competition Teams. She loves working with them, and is so proud of all of the growth and accomplishments they have achieved. Her passion for teaching continues to grow each year as well as her love for her students and her craft. She is extremely grateful for the positive environment that the studio provided to her throughout her childhood and now into her adult life. The studio is like a second home to her, and the other teachers and students like a second family. Kayla cannot wait to continue her teaching journey in the years to come.
