Today we get inspired by the amazing Professional Ballroom Dance Competitor and Owner of Arthur Murray Dance Studio Cambridge, Kia Kenney !
This gorgeous talented rockstar originally a Math Major fell into the dance world unintentionally!
After graduating from Taylor University with a Math/Systems degree, Kia worked for 4 years as a Management Consultant at Accenture doing technology design and process improvement for Financial Services companies.
"A basketball player and athlete at heart, it was a laughable proposal when she was invited to join a small, non-profit dance team that was to tour schools and churches throughout the US and Canada. But something stirred in her spirit, and after months of debate, Kia took a one year leave of absence from her consulting career to dance, sing, and travel."
Kia relocated to Boston at the conclusion of that year. She agreed to a few ballroom dance lessons with a friend from the dance troupe, and realized that she may have stumbled upon something that fed both her business and artistic interests.
She was immediately hired at the Arthur Murray Dance Center of Boston as a technology consultant while she began her teacher certification.
Kia quickly became a Top Twenty teacher within the company and received top honors as a pro/am competitor with her students. Within 18 months she was asked to Manage the studio.
Aren't you already inspired by this amazing rockstar! Let's learn all about what goes into ballroom dancing, what sets her Arthur Murray studio apart from others, popular dances to explore leading into holiday season and so much more!
