Kay Kissick has been a dance instructor for 36 years. For 8 years, she owned a dance studio in Winchester, Kentucky, called Arts Studio of Kentucky, and she has taught for many other studios, including the Frankfort School of Ballet. Kay has been Adjunct Faculty at both Indiana University Northwest in Gary, IN, and Valparaiso, IN, where she taught collegiate level courses and directed the universities’ dance companies. Kay is a charter member of the Nashville Ballet and danced professionally for 12 years, both in the ballet company and in off-Broadway musicals. Kay received a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from Oklahoma City University in 1987.
Kathy Gale received her dance training in Chatsworth, California, studying first with Donald P. Journeaux and later with Sheila Rozann. Her favorite style of dance is ballet, and as a child she was often seen leaping down hallways and using countertops in place of a barre. She was thrilled to get back into dance as an adult when her daughter, Shannon Gale, opened the Frankfort School of Ballet. Kathy began teaching at FSB in 2003, and currently teaches Adult Ballet and Level I Pre-professional Ballet. She is also a company dancer with Gale Force Dance.
She is looking forward to another inspirational year of dance and performance with both new and returning students, and as always, she will be attending FSB's upper level ballet classes because they keep her in great health.
As the owner of the Boogie Boutique, she is happy to help dancers find the dance attire they are looking for and will gladly special order items that are not in stock. The Boutique is open during class hours and by special appointment.
