Meet The Team - Kayleigh Harradine - Stevenage, Herts, UK
What’s your name and where are you in the world?
Kayleigh Harradine – England. Hertfordshire, Stevenage
What kind of dance do you currently offer?
Dance styles I offer are street dance, commercial, contemporary and pop dance parties/workshops for either adults or kids. I also offer dance fitness for adults and older teens.
What got you into dance?
I’ve danced since I was younger doing the classic ballet tap and modern. Slowly progressed during school at GCSE and A-Level dance. Then carried on my passion at university. Graduating in 2019 with a first class degree in dance and professional practice. I’ve taught dance to ages 3-18 since graduating and would hopefully in the future like to continue to teaching and open up my own school one day.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to keep busy, when I’m not dancing or teaching I love spending time with family and friends. Weekends away are a great way for me to do that. Travelling is also another passion and I am set to travel to America for a long period of time.
What do you love about the area you live and work in?
I live in a town called Stevenage in Hertfordshire in the UK. There are many opportunities for dancers in this area, lots of dance schools and classes for people to take. When I open up my own I would like to cater for a gap in the market and really search for something that hasn’t been done yet.
Why did you want to work with Popdance?
Popdance intrigued me because the idea of having a dance class as a party for younger people but also for adults makes a dance teacher very happy. That’s a great vibe all in one place. I would love to share my knowledge on dance and make someone’s birthday a fun one all in one go.
What are you looking forward to for the year ahead?
Experiencing new adventures with teaching as every class is different. Seeing where my journey can go as an individual with dance and my own school. And also travelling to America, I’m super excited for!
