  • Miss Kayleigh: Principal, Owner, Dance Teacher

    Miss Kayleigh

    Kayleigh is living her dream – she has always wanted to teach and opening KDF ACADEMY was just the icing on the cake

    Kayleigh started dancing at the age of 5, and in her own words was not particularly good to start off with. Her love for dance and performance grew as she took examinations, competed in local dance festivals and performed in numerous stage shows.

    At the age of 16 Kayleigh successfully auditioned for a place at The Brit School (home to icons like AMY WINEHOUSE, JESSIE J AND ADELE) Kayleigh graduated The Brit School with a diploma in professional musical theatre in 2008

    Since graduating from The Brit school Kayleigh has gained her professional ISTD teaching qualifications in imperial classical ballet and modern theatre dance. She has taught for some of the top dance schools across the south, judged numerous dance competitions and had numerous success stories with her students.

    Kayleigh’s ISTD EXAM entry pass rate is 100%

    Kayleigh brings to her school and teaching, experience, skill, love, understanding and most of all passion.

    Kayleigh’s professional experience spans many different areas of the industry, she has appeared in commercials, danced in professional shows, appeared on The Brit awards, worked for The Walt Disney Company and acted as a talent agent for some of the leading agencies in the south.

    Kayleigh is thrilled to have KDF ACADEMY and can’t wait for things to come
