Wondering who will be running tryouts this Sunday? Meet our new coach, Kayla!
Kayla Harkness began her dance training in Houston, Texas. She has been dancing for twenty-five years, professionally for over ten.
Kayla started her professional career with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Over four years with the company, she performed many musical theater productions around the world such as A Chorus Line, 42nd Street, and many more. Kayla also had a healthy career in Atlanta, Georgia; working in TV/Film, music videos, commercials, and at Atlanta Ballet. After five years as an instructor at the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education Kayla moved to Boston in the fall of 2011. Here she began work as a Boston Celtics Dancer. While with the Boston Celtics, Kayla was selected three consecutive years to go on tour internationally with the NBA, to work as a dancer at their NBA3X tours and one year for Pre-Season in Istanbul, Turkey.
Kayla recently retired, as Captain, from the Boston Celtics Dancers. Since then she has become a Husky! Kayla is excited to be Northeastern University's new Head Coach of the Dance Team. Kayla will continue to focus on the journey her passion for dance and love for the community has brought her way. She is looking forward to tryouts and a wonderful season at Northeastern University!
We are so excited for what Coach Kay will be bringing to our season!
