Kiara Justine Kinghorn has been a dancer since the age of five, and passionately teaching, performing, and choreographing dance throughout California and nationally for the past fifteen years. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance from UC Santa Barbara where her choreography was called “unusually sophisticated” by The Santa Barbara News Press and won the 2010 Corwin Award. Additionally, her honors thesis project, an evening-long multimedia dance project based on TS Eliot’s The Wasteland, won The Undergraduate Creative Research Award (UCRA) and much collegiate acclaim. After graduation, Kiara was a company member with American Dance and Music, and a guest artist and teacher at Santa Barbara Festival Ballet. She has performed backup dance for neo-soul musician Mayer Hawthorne, appeared in his videos, and toured with him. Kiara relocated to Los Angeles in 2013 and dabbled in commercial styles, performing ballet and jazz with the LA Follies and a cruise contract in the Bahamas. She has taught for the Align Ballet Method for the past five years, and is looking forward to beginning her MFA at UC Irvine in Fall 2018.

As my mother watched “Dirty Dancing” in the movie theater, I made my dance debut with a kick in the womb. Ballerina turned Hip-Hop dancer, some of my adventures include touring China as a dancer for Pop Star Jay Chou, training in New York City at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and dancing as a leading futuristic lady in Steve Aoki and Waka Flocka’s music video, Rage the Night Away.
In 2012 I founded “Soul of Cali” a creative haven for youth to dance and discover personal style from the inside out. “Save the World” my dance along for kids, produced by Mega Mace is available in several languages broadcasted by Cyberobics through out Europe.
I spend my summers at the best place on earth, exploring cultural arts and true unity at World Groove Summer Camp! When I’m not creating with the kiddos, you can catch an adult cardio class with me at Moore Dancing in Brentwood, where good vibes flow.
