Meet Kahlil Harris of Pro Dance Yard Academy in Southern California

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kahlil Harris.

Kahlil, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started dancing when I was four years old but didn’t take it seriously until I was 13. I did my first talent show at my middle school at the end of the year. I knew I wanted to be a professional dancer/ Teacher after that. Getting to where I am today wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for my mom, Kiva Holly-wood aka (Taylor Rene). She has taught me many things and has introduced me to a lot of people. From them, I have been able to grow my talents and improve in different ways, then after learning from them I joined a performing arts college called the Young Americans.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Honestly becoming the dancer, I am today has not been an easy road. I have had to learn to build up my endurance, learning quickly, and many other things. After learning from one challenge another challenge comes up, and I believe that’s a good thing because you are always gaining something and improving yourself.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Pro Dance Yard Academy – what should we know?
Before I was 21, I was able to travel to 15 different countries and perform over 300+ shows. This was all possible from the performing arts college called The Young Americans. Through them, I was able to further my passion by doing workshops and teaching kids around the world. I have worked with over 10000 kids of all ages. I primarily teach all forms of Hip-Hop but I can teach other styles including tumbling. I like to find the solution to the problem, plus finding the most efficient way to get a job done.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I like to give a shout out to Joey Alverado for teaching me the basics of popping. Every single instructor that has taught at a dance convention, from your classes, I have been able to understand the different dynamics when performing and doing choreography. All my friends that continue to support me.
