The grace and sweetness of young Kylee was the first thing that impressed me about her. Then as we got into her dance shoot at my studio her incredible talent left me speechless. These portraits are only a glimpse at the delightful time we had and the beauty this little person possess.
Here are a few highlights from the conversation I had with her...
How long have you been dancing? I started dance lessons when I was three.
What got you into ballet dancing? When I was like two years old I would dance and twirl a lot. My mom noticed this and thought I would probably love to take dance lessons and be really good at it.
Do you have a favorite dancer? Misty Copland because she stands up for what she believes in.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I want to be a professional dancer and I hope to one day own my own dance studio.
How many performances have you done so far? Lots. I was probably 4 when I did my first performance and we do one ever year at my dance studio.
How do you feel when you perform? All night before the performance I can't sleep because I'm so excited. But then once I get on stage I just take a deep breath and do without even thinking about it.
What do you like about dance? It's fun!
How much do you practice? Like.... 24/7
If you could be an animal, what animal would you choose and why? Uhmmm I don't know... probably a pygmy marmoset. They're so tiny and adorable. Then I'd also be a monkey because they really like to climb and I climb a lot.
