We are thrilled to invite family and friends to watch our summer intensive students perform at our studios on Friday August 23rd at 4:00pm. Choreography by Don Jordan, Cassel Miles , Loes Ruizeveld and Shawn Hounsell.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Rosemary Doyle (former KSD student) will be joining us this fall as guest teacher of Musical Theatre (Mondays at 5:00 pm).
Rosemary Doyle has made a life in the theatre. She has 40 years experience in theatre, as an actor,singer, playwright, director, lighting, set and costume designer, producer, marketer and administrator. Asked which of these she prefers she would not be able to tell you, as she thinks of herself as just a "THEATRE PERSON".
A returning Kingston native she has worked for Shaw, Mirvish, KST, Kingston Summer Festival, the Thousand Islands Playhouse, and many others.
She is the founding Artistic Director of the Red Sandcastle Theatre, a venue she opened in Toronto's Leslieville neighbourhood in 2011. This indie storefront theatre, which brought shows east of the DVP, is still going strong.
We are thrilled to have Sierra Brewerton join us this spring. Sierra will be teaching Tap, Barre Burn and Stretch Leap and Turn. Sierra is an accomplished dancer and actress who performs regularly in Musical Theatre and in film. Welcome to KSD!!
We also have Holly Rose Lorenzon teaching our B- Boyz , she is a member of the KinetiQ Crew and a real expert in Freestyle. We look forward to having her bust a move with our dancers! You can read more about these wonderful ladies below.
Actor, Singer, Dancer
“I love your personality and think you are so charismatic! That’s a quality you can’t teach.”
– Carolina Lancaster, Triple Threat Dance Convention
Born and raised in the greater Vancouver area, Sierra has been singing, dancing and acting since the age of six. She recently graduated from high school and Danzmode Productions where she studied all dance styles intensively. She still continues to take private singing lessons, and studies acting with Shea Hampton.
During her competitive dance days, Sierra was fortunate to travel to New York, LA, and Las Vegas to train and compete. She won First Place National Tap Soloist at West Coast Dance Explosion in Las Vegas, and was named BC Provincial Champion in the stage/tap category in Duncan, BC. She also received numerous scholarships over the years at dance conventions, competitions, and vocal festivals.
Sierra has already established an impressively versatile professional career. After switching to online schooling at age 17, she travelled to Alberta after being cast in Anne Of Green Gables with Theatre Calgary; she was the youngest performer ever hired by the theatre company for a show that didn’t involve children. Sierra has also worked in many musicals in Vancouver including Gypsy (Arts Club), Sound of music (RCMT/Footlight), and Singing in the Rain (TUTS, Grace MacDonald Most Promising Dancer Recipient).
Other credits of Sierras include: Mariana’s Trench music videos “Pop 101” and “Stutter”, Amanda Blush music video “Give It All”, two seasons of the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular (Tap Dance Captain), docudrama My Evil Sister (Supporting), and short film Inked Hearts (Lead) and several regional and national commercials.

Dear KSD Families,
As some of you may already be aware, our lovely Miss Kay will be leaving us after this week of classes. One of the benefits of having a professional dancer teaching, is the insight and wisdom they bring to our studios, however this also means that they have to leave us sometimes in order to fulfil their professional dance contracts. Kay will be performing with a contemporary dance company for the next two months but will be back before our show to cheer us on and of course will be back at our school next fall.
We love her and wish her the best!!
All her classes have been covered by equally lovely teachers.
