Kia has been dancing since the age of 3, when her mom signed her up in an attempt to get her to come out of her shell. Ever since, Kia has trained in many styles competitively and continued her dance journey at the University of MN-Morris. She graduated with an emphasis in dance, focusing on the history and progression of Tap dance. Kia expanded her love for teaching during her college career and is excited to share her passion and love of dance with the Platinum families. She hopes to spread kindness through dance and to help students grow not just as dancers, but as people too!
