Kia began his dancing at age 10 in New York at Broadway Dance Center. With Broadway Dance Center, Kia trained exclusively in Ballet for five years and performed in the productions of Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and The Nutcracker Suite.
At the age of 15, Kia moved to California where he continued his dance education at Defore Dance Center in Costa Mesa and The Edge in Hollywood and expanded his dance repertoire to include the styles of Jazz, Musical Theater, Hip Hop and Contemporary. Kia has worked for Disney, Pasadena Civic Ballet Company, Clear Channel and countless similar performance-based industries in Southern California and Las Vegas. From 2001 to 2011, Kia taught Jazz, Hip Hop, and Contemporary at The Colony Of Performing Arts.
In 2007, he and his best friend, Aimee Weeks, founded their own female cabaret troupe, The Vixen Show. Most recently, Kia began an all male cabaret troupe, The Foxes Show. Kia is thrilled to begin a new chapter with AVANTI Dance Company. We are so happy to have Kia as part of our dance faculty. Kia is an enthusiastic and inspiring instructor, always encouraging both proper technique and having fun.
