Participating yearly in the ADAPT Syllabus Examinations, she has completed her Advanced Tap and Intermediate Jazz under the supervision of Brian and Faye Foley. While training Kylie attended many competitions in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia receiving many medals and awards.

It was while training in Edmonton Kylie found her passion, teaching! She moved back to Saskatchewan and began teaching in rural Saskatchewan and Saskatoon. It was during this time she worked towards her ADAPT Tap and Jazz Teachers Training Certification.

In summer 2003, Kylie graduated from the ADAPT course and continued to train her students and successfully advanced dancers in the ADAPT Examination process. Some of Kylie's students have gone onto a professional dance career; others have followed her example and have become dance teachers as well.

 

Kylie along with her husband Tyler and three sons, Gage, Carson and Easton moved to Humboldt in 2007 where she began working under the direction of Jacquie Huck at Jacquie's Dance Academy. She was introduced to the C.D.T.A (Canadian Dance Teachers Association) Syllabus and was on her way to completing the course.

Kylie also continues her dance education by participating in new and creative dance courses. She has recently completed her adjudicators’ certificate of completion. Kylie is passionate about young children and their dance training, which is why she is also participating in a course for young children in ballet as well and Kinderacro for all the young dancers that she works with at Impact.

With the support of her family, Kylie and her business partner Terralea Armstrong opened up Impact Dance Company in fall of 2015. It is wonderful to see dancers grow from little ones into mature young adults with the skills they receive at Impact Dance Company
