Kayla has had a love of performing since she was 3 years old. Aside from competing nationally in the areas of dance, voice, and acting as a Triple Threat performer, Kayla loves to teach her art form. Throughout the years she has specialized in private voice and dance lessons, group classes, competition show choirs, and summer camps.
Kayla attended Western Michigan University, where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Early Childhood Education as well as a Major in Dance. While attending WMU, Kayla performed in countless dance concerts, including Western’s Orchesis shows and the Winter Gala Concerts of Dance, and was a member of the 2008-2009 Western Dance Project. Kayla is currently a seasonal company dancer for Tapestry Dance Company in Stevensville, MI.
Kayla has played many theatre roles, but her favorite has been Margot in Savvy Productions’ 2016 musical, Legally Blonde. Her other roles include Ensemble in The Music Man and Les Misérables, Joy in Roger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and Hunyak in Chicago.
One of her favorite experiences to date was being a character performer at Walt Disney World in Florida, where she brought enchantment to guests through meet & greets, special events, and shows within the park. Kayla hopes to use her high quality park training and experience to provide Everafter’s clients with the most magical character experiences around!
