kaelyn gray

Kaelyn Gray comes to us from Northern Kentucky, where she is a teacher/choreographer at Expressions Dance Theatre.  With a focus on all styles of dance, her work has been nationally-acclaimed and she has been a recipient of numerous choreography awards.

Her professional career began in her early 20s as a director and choreographer of three separate shows for Paramount's King's Island and King's Dominion.  Soon after, she was a Top 24 Finalist for Fox's hit television show, "So You Think You Can Dance".

Kaelyn's passion for tap dancing has provided many opportunities.  She became a member of Dayton's "Tap Factor" company under the direction of Chris Erk, one of the founding members of "Tap Dogs".  Her tap mentor, Gregg Russell, awarded Kaelyn with a full scholarship to his "Tap Into the Network" intensive this summer where she will train among the best in the business.

Her students can be seen at Disney in Orlando, on cruise ships, in college dance programs, and in film and television.  Recently, a student was awarded a Silver Medal at the Young Arts Scholarship competition in Miami, Florida, and was one of twenty chosen to possibly perform at the Kennedy Center for the President
