About KENNEDY KRAELING

Kennedy Kraeling was born in Vancouver, BC Canada in 1995. Her passion for dance was ignited just before her 3rd birthday as she watched the Nutcracker for the first time. Shorty thereafter, she began dancing at the Flora Pigeau Dance Academy where she had the opportunity to study RAD ballet and compete in local festivals. She had the honor of representing a local festival at the BC provincial championships at the age of 10. She began her formal training at age 11 in Toronto at Canada's National Ballet School under the tutelage and guidance of Mavis Staines, Deborah Hess, Carina Bomers, Laurel Toto, Jeremy Ransom and Martine Lamy. During her studies Mavis Staines became and remains a close and significant mentor. Together they realized that Kennedy’s artistic identity was going to necessitate a versatile more contemporary influence. She moved back to Vancouver at 15 and began to train under Artemis Gordon at Arts Umbrella and in the Arts Umbrella Dance Company. Upon graduation she spent two years in the Arts Umbrella Graduate Program. During these two years she was fortunate enough to work with on new and existing repertoire Lesley Telford, Crystal Pite, James Kudelka, Fernando Magadan, Gioconda Barbuto, Walter Matteini, Mauro Astolfi, Thomas Klein, Francesca Caroti and Shawn Hounsell. A highlight of dancing for the Arts Umbrella Dance Company was touring in Holland and Italy in 2014, collaborating with NDT, Korzo and Imperfect Dancers. Over the years her training has been complimented by summer intensives such as SanFrancisco Conservatory of Dance and Alvin Ailey.
