Kylie is an accomplished jazz, ballet, and tap dancer who is the principal of Norris Studios in Auckland, New Zealand. For the past twenty years Kylie has trained dancers to a competitive and professional level, with many going on to embark on international careers. Kylie is a sought after choreographer, with her own distinctive style. One piece that has been viewed all over the world, is her work titled 'Origami.' The routine has sparked articles to be written about it in Creme and NZ Life & Leisure magazine, has appeared on television shows Good Morning, and The 4.30 Show and was invited to compete in Americas Got Talent. The routine appeared as a dance feature in NZ’s Coca Cola Christmas in the Park to an audience of 200,000 people.
Kylie holds a teaching certificate with the NZAMD (New Zealand Association of Modern Dance) in which she gained one of the highest marks in the country.
When not training young dancers, Kylie has worked alongside the best professional cabaret entertainers in New Zealand as head costume designer and choreographer for corporate events, creating showgirl routines with her own unique style and edge.
In 2017, Kylie based herself in Australia and has travelled extensively teaching, choreographing and adjudicating throughout the country; as well as Hong Kong and the UK. This year she has developed the Elite Training Extension Program with Lucy Ellis. This dance program offers regular workshop classes to help dancers reach their full potential. The program has grown rapidly; already expanding to Adelaide, Perth and Auckland.
Kylie would like to thank Evolution Dance Competition for appointing her as the adjudicator this weekend and she is excited to watch all the incredible talent that the Gold Coast dancers have to offer.
