Kennedy is now a signed artist with MSA Talent Agency. Under their representation, she has been able to be a part of several music videos, musicals, live stage performances, etc. Kennedy was a valued member of the Centre for Performing Arts staff as not only an instructor, but as a choreographer for 3 years. Her choreography for Centre’s Elite level competition teams have won overall placements, placed at the highest levels in adjudication, received judges awards, and received invitationals from cities and states spanning across the nation. Kennedy is a sought after instructor, professional working dancer, and choreographer, but has always made it her goal to give back to her community by providing others an opportunity to accumulate some of the same skills and techniques she has acquired. She is the director of her personally crafted summer dance program created 5+ years ago. It has grown tremendously throughout the years with a following of over 100 dancers seeking to train under her guidance. Kennedy is an artist and a mentor to dancers, pulling the very best out of everyone she comes into contact with.
