Bio-Ms. Kenda

Kenda Newbury

Actively involved within the professional dance world (performer, choreographer, instructor, dance judge, board member) for over 40 years. 

Specialties:   

  • Connecting dancers to their bodies so that they can continue and excel in dance in a technique & artistry-based environment

  • My teaching is based upon science, years of study anatomy/physics & different dancer/athlete bodies related to dance, personal experiences, working with a variety of different bodies, mindsets, ages & levels

  • The outcome, I hope, is a student will continue to love dance, learn to work hard in a safe (both in mind and body way) and be challenged, learn to apply corrections, and know that dance is a never-ending learning process. I want to raise dancers that although may not continue "in" dance on a professional level, but will forever apply what they learned in the dance class/performance environment to every day living situations.

  • Connecting with teens and adults in ballet, jazz, cheer, pom, dance team, competitive teams, student companies and professional dance companies.

  • Working with WGI, marching bands, athletes, competition choirs, musicals, POM teams, and more

Quotes since the 80's: 

  • Quality over Quantity

  • Dance is for every single BODY

  • Technique & Artistry over Tricks

  • You have Everything to SHARE & Nothing to Prove
