Kendyll began her dance training at the age of two, but really found her passion for dance after she joined Stoughton Center for the Arts. In 2013 she became a member of the SCA pre-professional program and company. She later went on to Bucknell University as a dance merit scholar, and member and choreographer of the Bucknell Dance Company. She primarily studied modern dance under the direction of Kelly Knox, and ballet and jazz under Professors Er-Dong Hu and Dustyn Martincich.

As a member of the Bucknell Dance Company she performed original repertory from residency artists such as Ailey II dancer Nathaniel Hunt, Giordano Jazz principal Eddy Ocampo, and Sidra Bell of Sidra Bell Dance NYC. She also participated in master classes from notable artists, such as Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet, Nrityagram Dance Ensemble, and Parsons Dance. In addition she participated in student-run organizations, such as Stampede Hip-Hop club, and served as president of the Riff and Ray tap club. Beyond campus, she studied Ballet under the supervision of Amy Casimir of Strictly ballet. She taught modern and contemporary at Downtown Dance studio for three years, in addition to serving as choreographer for RiverStage Community Theater.

Currently, she is working to refine her classical modern technique through an apprenticeship at Kanopy Dance, and is continuing with her passion for teaching and choreography at A Step Above. She has also had the privilege to teach at her old studio, SCA, and has set guest choreography at several other studios in southern Wisconsin.
