After years of Assistant Teaching her favorite instructors, attending Florida Dance Master Conventions and dedicating many hours to rehearsals and time at the studio, Kayla decided that wherever life led her – dance would always be an active part of it. During her time at Florida State University, her dance training continued with classes and performances within the Dance Department at FSU and a role as Dance Captain for the production of the Tango Opera “Maria De Buenos Aires”. Additionally, Kayla performed throughout Tallahassee as a resident of the Dance Tallahassee Dance Company for three consecutive years, led master dance classes and fell in love with Barre and Pilates as exercise. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in English and Communications in 2017, she then received her Barre and Pilates certifications and continues to teach both methodologies alongside her work as a Dance Instructor. She prides herself in pairing her knowledge of safe movement practice with dance and is so elated to be back teaching at Meg Segreto’s to help build a healthy and strong dance foundation for each student!
