About the lesson

As a teacher, I like to challenge my students, and help them to do their best work. If I see them struggling with something, I try to assist them the best that I can. For example, if I am teaching tap dance to the students and see a student struggling, I model the step for them, and let them try it. I also go sound by sound, or count by count with the student mirroring me, to help them get the step that they’re struggling with. This also helps to the student relax, and feel that they can work with me.
I love seeing students grow and develop over time. I find that very rewarding. I love watching students finally becoming successful with movement after struggling with it. I love seeing them work hard on and enjoy something that I have created for them to do. I also enjoy seeing students getting excited over something new that they are learning. I feel that those are the most important reasons why I started teaching.

About Kayley

Kayley Thompson has been dancing since the age of five, and trained for thirteen years at Royal Dance Works. There she trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern/contemporary, hip hop, and musical theater classes. She performed and competed for many years in Royal Dance Works’ top performance companies, being part of several national 1st place competition wins. She has trained and taken master classes under some of the best dance teachers and choreographers in the nation including: Mia Michaels, Jackie Sleight, Justin Giles, Doug Caldwell, Jaci Royal, Wes Veldink, Travis Wall, Katie Spreadbury, Logan Lipton, Roberto Villanueva, Becky Jung, Alex Ketley, Summer Lee Rhatigan, Michael Williams, Mike Esperanza, Elizabeth George, Cory Finn, Sasha Mallory, Danielle Horn, and Tyce Diorio. Kayley graduated with both her Associates in Arts and Associates in Fine Arts- Dance from Glendale Community College in December, 2012. Under the GCC dance program she won 1st, 2nd, and honorable mention awards for her solo choreography at Maricopa Community College’s Artist of Promise competition, as well as 1st and 3rd place for her group choreography and performance. She is also a Lenna DeMarco Dance Scholarship recipient. Her work has also been showcased at the Center Dance Ensemble’s American Voices concert several times. In the summer of 2013, she was one of 18 choreographers chosen to present choreography in the Scorpius Dance Theatre’s Kick-A show. In April 2012, Kayley was a dancer/actor in the GCC musical theater production “Working”, as well as performing and choreographing for the PUSD Alumni production of the musical "The Drowsy Chaperone" in 2015, "Merrily We Roll Along" (2016), Curtains (2018), and Pirates of Penzance (2019). Kayley graduated in 2015 from Grand Canyon University with a BFA in Dance Education. In addition to teaching and choreographing, her interests also include acting and filmmaking. She hopes to pursue those in the future. Kayley enjoys teaching all styles that she has trained in, and currently teaches tap, jazz, contemporary, musical theater, hip hop, ballet, and Twinkle Star classes. Kayley is the director of her own professional dance company, ClassicalFusionDance with the goal of telling stories by fusing her love of the past (film/music/choreographic styles) with a twist of the present.
