Kyera has been dancing since the age of 2 and Cheerleading since the age of 5 at the Yvonne Gray Dance Studios. She has trained in multiple genres including; RAD ballet, ISTD tap and modern, ID contemporary and hip hop, jazz, highland and competitive cheerleading.
Kyera has always had a strong passion for both competing and performing. She was successfully cast as a child dancer in the annual Kirkcaldy pantomimes for three consecutive years.
Growing up, Kyera spent almost every day at the dance studios and always looked forward to the shows and competitions. She was especially thrilled to travel to Amsterdam with Yvolution where she competed at her first European championships. This was a very special year for Kyera as not only was she proud to be the coach of a hip hop duet that were selected to represent Scotland, but she was also representing Scotland herself competing in the Jazz duet section, with her mother.
In 2011 Kyera successfully tried out for Team Scotland All Girl Elite, and Team Scotland Hip Hop. This was her first experience competing at the Cheerleading and Dance World Championships in Orlando, Florida and a memory she holds very dear to her heart.
Kyera was later selected through application to spend ten days gaining work experience with the Royal Academy of Dance during the Genée International Ballet Competition. She thoroughly enjoyed this experience and gained both lifetime skills and friends.
Kyera went on to train with Aviator Allstars in Leeds for three years and competed throughout Europe with them. She returned to the World Championships with them in 2014.
At age 19, Kyera moved to Wales and studied Contemporary Dance at Cardiff Metropolitan University and of course had to join the University's cheerleading team and her local team. Kyera later went on to join Rising Stars based in Manchester and returned to Worlds a third time, placing 7th in the world with them.
Throughout her years of dancing and cheerleading, she has been part of Scotcheer Staff and FlipTricks staff both of which are cheer and dance clinic providers and has taught up and down the UK delivering workshops to athletes and coaches.
Kyera is a registered teacher with ID Street Dance, Acrobatic Arts, and holds ICU coaching credentials to Level 3 in cheerleading.
Kyera started teaching at Yvonne Gray Dance Studios in 2018 where she teaches hip hop, acrobatics and the cheer team – Supreme Allstars.
