Denver Nuggets Dancers

Meet Kayla

The 2020-21 season will be Kayla’s second season with the Denver Nuggets Dancers (DND). An Ankeny, Iowa native, Kayla attended the University of Iowa, where she majored in dance while also receiving her entrepreneurial certificate.

Kayla has been dancing for 21 years. When she isn’t dancing for DND, Kayla is a dance teacher and choreographer for different dance studios and high school teams. “I love working with kids and being creative,” she says. “Eventually, I would like to be able to own my own business either as a choreography company or costume designing company.”

Kayla can’t wait to perform with DND during the 2019-20 season, saying “it is such a huge honor to be able to do what I love most at a professional level with such a talented team in the beautiful city of Denver.”

Some of Kayla’s favorite hobbies include hiking, swimming, snowboarding and listening to live music. Her favorite movie is Chicago because “I love crime stories, comedy, and jazz dance.” Kayla’s favorite inspirational quote is “dreams don’t work unless you do”, and her guilty pleasure is caffeinated drinks like iced coffee or soda.

We are incredibly excited to welcome Kayla to DND!
