Kylie's got Flair
AFTER teaching dance for more than 20 years, Laidley's Kylie Knappick still has an eye for talent.
At the age of four, Kylie danced at Flair Dance Academy for the first time and today has now been the proud owner of the very same studio for 10 years.
Not many stones were left unturned when she was dancing, trying out different styles of dance including jazz, tap, classical, contemporary, cabaret, Latin and hip hop.
Kylie's experience and skills led her to become a qualified dance teacher at only 17 when she gained her Student Diploma for tapping and the Jazz Award through the Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing.
Ten years ago she became the principle teacher and owner of Flair Dance, and is keen to instil her students with a love of dance.
Kylie said the key to dancing is enjoyment.
"We place a particular emphasis on fun during dance classes, using modern music and moves to get students active while helping them to develop self confidence," she said.
An annual concert at the end of each year gives the students a chance to showcase their new and improved skills.
Correct technique and moves are easily accomplished with at least one teacher and one teaching assistant present in every class, allowing for more personalised dance instruction.
Class sign up and a free trial class will be on Tuesday, January 17 at the Uniting Church Hall in Patrick Street, Laidley from 4pm. For details contact Kylie on (07) 5465 3474.
