Kylie is 16 years old and began her dancing journey on her fifth birthday with Riverside Ballet Arts. At age 9, she found her “home” with Inland Pacific Ballet Academy, learning how to strengthen and improve her technique, artistry, learn valuable life skills, and develop strong relationships with those around her. Kylie’s experience with IPB Academy has included recitals of The Sleeping Beauty, Coppélia, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Swan Lake, and the Little Mermaid. Additionally, she has performed in The Nutcracker for four years, and has the honor of dancing Clara in the 2022 production. Kylie has completed four years of IPB Academy’s summer intensive, and recently had the privilege of attending San Francisco Ballet School’s summer intensive. In addition, this past year, Kylie placed Top 24 in the Senior Division at Youth America Grand Prix, and Top 12 Large Ensemble category at the San Diego venue, which granted her and her peers the incredible opportunity and honor of being invited to YAGP Finals in Tampa, FL. With much support and money raised through various fundraisers, the ensemble group was able to attend and perform at the Finals. Kylie acknowledges every opportunity she is given to illustrate her passion for ballet and expresses a tremendous amount of gratitude towards her family and instructors.
