Kym Peters

Instructor; Co-Director Triple Threat Competition Team

Kym Peters returns to Ankeny Dance this year with excellent credentials and unbridled enthusiam for dance and young people. Her love of all styles of dance began at an early age, and she has trained extensively in tap, jazz, ballet and pointe, modern, hip hop, lyrical dance, not to mention competition dance.

Kym competed in dance at all levels, and like Studio Director Sarah Ferree, she attended Oklahoma City University as a dance major in a program that is regarded by dance professionals as one of the top programs in the country. Kym's degree is in dance with a focus on dance pedagogy, so she has extensive training on how to instruct young people and break down new concepts and techniques in a way students can benefit the most. Kym has a deep love for dance and the arts and for mentoring young people... and it shows! We're thrilled Kym is instructing again this year at Ankeny Dance and Performing Arts Academy and bringing her high level of qualifications and enthusiam to our staff!
