Miss Kalene

Position: Jazz and Lyrical

Kalene was born and raised in Gravenhurst, Ontario. At age six she joined the Gravenhurst Skating Club and after just one year decided to switch up her hobby and join the dance community. She studied and taught at Just 4 Kicks Academy of Dance in Gravenhurst, which is owned and operated by Wendy Laidlaw. Her dream to dance paid off as she attended workshops and world competitions. She travelled to Orlando, FL, Buffalo, NY, New York City and Hollywood, CA on approved scholarships. Dance auditions placed her in Germany and Austria with the Canadian National Dance Team; Hip-hop in Austria and Showdance in Germany. While in Hollywood, she danced in her first music video with Vee Sevani called “Movin On” and last year she was an extra in Shawn Desman’s music video, “Too Young Too Care”. Kalene is currently working with ‘The Cast Dance Company Apprentice Program’ with Angela Mahoney at OIP in Toronto. She is going into her first year with ‘The Conteur Academy’ studying contemporary dance, which is artistically directed by Eryn Waltman. Kalene’s goal as a dancer is to hone her craft, while exploring and sharing her love for dance with her students. Kalene is excited for her first year with us and the Danceworks family.
