Stephen AND KENDRA PRIMAVERA
Kendra began dancing when she was three years old. From that moment on, she fell in love with the dance world. She has been teaching for 14 years. Kendra was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2006. She has choreographed for Clovis High, Clovis East, Kastner, and Alta Sierra Competition Pep Teams. She has coached the Clovis West Pep Team as well. Under Kendra’s direction, Dolce Dance Studio was recognized as one of the Top 50 Studios in the Nation, and the Top 20 in the Region for the past three years.
Kendra has a passion for teaching dancers of all ages and abilities. She specializes in jazz, lyrical, technique, and choreography. Her dancers have won enumerable high point awards and have gone on to work professionally in commercials and television shows. Kendra has won numerous choreography awards as well. She has the ability to develop every dancer to their highest potential.
Kendra is not only a teacher/choreographer but also a mother to four children. She makes her studio a warm, friendly, and family environment where they can thrive as dancers. She treats each and every kid as if they were her own and will help them reach any goal that they set for themselves.
Kayleigh began dancing at the age of five at the former Fresno City Guys and Dolls dance studio. She was a member of their competition teams until the age of twelve. In 2004 she was approached by Kendra to help out at Dolce Dance Studio part time in the office. Since then it has progressed into managing the studio full time. She prides herself in making the day to day studio operations run smoothly. Kayleigh has over ten years in administrative experience and loves being part of the dance community. She looks forward to serving the families of these wonderful dancers. Her love for dance is shown by her compassion and caring she has for all of the dancers.
Kayleigh is such a big part of the success of Dolce Dance Studio. She is often making sure teachers are in place for classes, ordering of costumes, rhinestones, billing, and handling all competitions. She often helps line up the prop dads for the competitions and the loading and unloading of the trailer. Dolce Dance Studio is grateful to have Kayleigh.
Susie has been working with Kendra at Dolce Dance Studio since 2003 where it all began with a two room dance studio and only two dance teachers at Ashlan & Chestnut in Fresno. Susie works the front desk assisting families with their children's dance needs along with administrative and accounting duties. She has been involved with dance since her oldest daughter started dancing and competing at the age of 12 and her youngest daughter at the age of 3 years old. She has been in the dance community for the past 23 years and truly loves being a part of our Dolce Dance Studio family.
Susie is a full time commercial property manager in Fresno, but her heart and soul is with Dolce and the reason she enjoys working at the studio with our wonderful Dolce teaching staff which includes her youngest daughter, Kaelyn (Teacher KK) who has been with Kendra since she was 9 years old competing with Dolce. Susie also has an 8 year old granddaughter that dances and competes with Dolce Dance Studio. Not only does Susie love dance - she enjoys meeting and working with all our Dolce parents and their children and grandchildren. She is very proud to be a part of Dolce Dance Studio and our Dolce Family!
