Kayla began dancing when she was five-years old in Southern California but did not become serious about pursuing ballet until she was twelve. When Kayla was sixteen, she was given the opportunity to become a substitute teacher at her studio which she gladly accepted. While her mother had always encouraged her to "dance for Jesus", she struggled with the idea of how dancing could be used to help her enter into worship with God. During the summer of 2021, Kayla attended Paradosi's summer dance intensive and during this time God opened her heart to how she could enter into His presence through her dancing. Once she started opening her heart while dancing to God, her mental health greatly improved and her relationship with the LORD was strengthened.
Kayla is eager to further growing in her relationship with God as well as improving her dancing while with Paradosi.
