Kendra Reynolds, from Wylie, Texas, began dancing at the age of three. Kendra loves to move and be busy and has found dance to be the perfect outlet. Kendra danced with the McLennan Community College dance team where she competed and won a National Championship in 2010 and 2011. While at MCC, Kendra had the opportunity to perform on stage with the Black Eyed Peas during the Super Bowl halftime show. Kendra then went on to graduate with her Bachelors in Dance Studies from Texas Woman’s University. Kendra also holds a Masters of Arts in Dance and a certification in Dance 6-12 from Texas Woman’s University. Upon completing her undergraduate degree, Kendra began teaching at Dance Company of Wylie. She quickly fell in love with teaching and watching her students progress.
As a teacher, Kendra uses her passion for building relationships with students and working collaboratively with her colleagues to share her enthusiasm for learning. She hopes to instill in her students a desire to be a lifelong learner. She hopes her classroom offers a safe place for students to move and construct an identity through dance. Her goal is that her students learn not just to dance but how to create creatively, lead, build relationships and gain discipline.
Kendra continues to dance professionally with 8&1 Dance Company. She finds inspiration through movement and being on stage herself. She finds that she is her best self as a teacher when she herself is given opportunities to perform and grow as a dancer. Kendra is thrilled to be a part of KCPA. Her goal is to lead her dancers to become strong movers and creative human beings. She looks forward to being a part of KCPA’s success.
