Kayla Ellenwood

Owner/Head Instructor

Starting in 2015, Kayla began her journey of opening Pulse Dance and Performance Center. Her love for dance began in high school and has grown deeply over the past 10 years. She competed locally at Northrop High School on the Varsity Jazz/Lyrical team and was a student teacher for dance classes at Northrop. Throughout high school she danced at various studios around Fort Wayne and upon graduating Kayla made the dance team at the University of Saint Francis but decided she wanted to take her passion further and began working on opening her own place to share with the community of Fort Wayne. Since opening Pulse Kayla has continued her dance education at the University at Buffalo during the summer by taking training courses for ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, hip hop, teaching children, musical theatre, and more. Kayla has preformed with her adult dance team for various local events as well as traveling to surrounding areas for performances. Miss Kayla has also begun mission work in Haiti and has traveled to share her love of dance by providing a dance camp to children in the village of Mizak. Come take a class with Miss Kayla today!
