Did you know… 

Kayla’s love of dance started when her dance school would perform end of year concerts and eisteddfods. The nutcracker was the first ballet she ever saw, and she would watch the older ballerinas and wish to be like them when she grew up.   

 

“Don’t compare yourself to others because everyone is different and has their own path so just focus on yourself and don’t let anyone bring you down.”
