I met Kam 6 years ago when I attended the Summer Intensive at the Richmond Academy of Dance. I fell so much in love with the school, that I ended up moving to Vancouver for the next school year. Yes, that's right. I moved to a completely new city for my grade 12 year and I am so glad that I did, because if I hadn't, this beautiful young lady wouldn't have become a part of my life!
Kamilah has spend this past season as a professional ballerina with Ballet Kelowna. I am one proud sister.
Here is Kamilah's Interview!
About The Artist
How long have you been dancing for?
Kam: I have now been dancing for 15, almost 16 years.
Favourite style of dance?
Kam: TOUGH! I always use ballet as my base, the core of all my dancing (technique wise), but dancing contemporary/ neo classical ballet/ contemp ballet I feel the most free and creative...I give my heart away each time I dance that style. Aside from dancing, wanna make me happy? GIVE ME A MUSICAL...what can be better than singing dancing and acting at the same time.
Favourite type of dance shoe?
Kam: Ballet: soft shoe would defs be sansha, and pointe shoe would be either FREED studio II, or gaynor mindens.
When was your first solo?
Kam: (Laughs). Well I love teaching children..but I guess thats not spare time . I can never be doing NOTHING...I get lazy that way. I love yoga and pilates in mornings, I write ALOT, I have a passion for fashion and makeup. I will usually sketch designs and I have recently started bringing those designs to life. Oh, did I forget to mention that I am a major sports fan, I would NEVER turn down a chance to go to a game of any sport.
A big thanks to Kamilah! I can't wait to see you, my love!
