Kayla Mak grew up in Rye Brook, NY and is of Japanese, Chinese, and Cuban descent. She studied at Westchester Dance Academy and Ballet Academy East and is now entering her third year at The Juilliard School in NY where she will receive her BA, under the direction of Alicia Graf Mack and associate director Mario Alberto Zambrano. Kayla currently trains in ballet, modern, classical pointe, and contemporary pointe. Her inspiration for dance sparked at the young age of 4, while watching AB's production of The Nutcracker. She soon became involved in competitive dance where she was able to gain exposure to stage performance. Kayla also grew a love for concert dance and for the past summers has attended San Francisco Ballet Summer Intensive, Arts Umbrella Summer Intensive, Complexions Summer Intensive, and Orsolina's Nunes/FLOCK program. In the past year, Kayla has also performed at the Kaatsbaan Cultural Park Summer Festival, in the «Rising Stars» Show where she had the honor to perform Alvin Alley's «Memoria» coached by Masazumi Chaya and Elizabeth Roxas- Dobrish, as well as Justin Peck's «In Creases», coached by Patricia Delgado and Justin Peck. In the future, Kayla dreams to become a professional dancer in a company where she can meld her love for both ballet and contemporary.
