Ballet, Pre-Pointe, & Pointe Instructor
Kaiti began dancing at the age of 2 in Olney, MD (just outside of Washington, DC) where she trained pre-professionally in Ballet and Pointe and studied jazz, tap, and musical theatre at Jane Bittner’s Dance Center, her grandmother's studio. Kaiti’s instructors hailed from companies all over the world including London, China, and Ukraine. Each instructor instilled a love of discipline and achievement while mastering proper technique.
With over 20 years of performance experience, Kaiti has danced lead, solo, and corps roles with Olney Children's Ballet Theatre/Olney Ballet Theatre in The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Les Sylphide, Cinderella, Serenade, Concerto Barocco, A Journey Through Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty and more! After college, Kaiti danced with Community Nutcracker (Jacksonville, FL) and Braided Light Dance Project and taught/choreographed for Ballet Arts Center (FL), Gainesville Dance Center (VA), and Ravel Dance Studio (VA).
She relocated to the Northern Kentucky area in 2017 and is grateful for Rapture Dance Company allowing her the opportunity to share her contagious passion for ballet and pointe as she continues to inspire the next generation of dancers.
