Ms. Kait is a Pennsylvania native and has called Kelowna home for the last 5 years. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Dance Performance from Oklahoma City University with a focus in ballet, rhythm tap, jazz, and musical theatre. While at university, she participated in several of the dance companies across campus including Rhythms Hip Hop and Stomp team and the renowned American Spirit Dance Company. Through participation in these companies, Kait had the opportunity to perform on campus and off at various events throughout Oklahoma City as well as the city’s televised Centennial Celebration in honour of 100 years of statehood. After her time in Oklahoma, she moved to New York City to audition and train as a dance professional. Following a few years chasing dreams and a move to Buffalo, NY, Kait discovered her passion for teaching. She took a job instructing adults in all genres of dance including ballet, tap, jazz, musical theatre, barre, burlesque, and body percussion.
Since landing in the Okanagan in 2016, Kait has been part of the Tap Faculty at The Canadian School of Ballet. She is excited for the opportunity to dust off her jazz shoes and teach at the Summer Intensive!
In addition to teaching dance, she enjoys travelling, hiking, swimming in the lake, riding her motorcycle, skiing, and spending time with her husband and beloved pup
