Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Kalah is the first certified ASA! instructor in her city. Kalah started her dance training at the age of 4 and although dance is Kalah’s first love, she also has a deep passion for the sciences. She pursued this passion at the illustrious Tuskegee University and obtained a B.S. in Animal, Poultry and Veterinary Sciences in 2012. Kalah also dedicates her time as mentor and choreographer to The Essence Dance Team, a youth based dance team that promotes self-esteem, character building and performance. In 2015 Kalah became a certified ASA fitness instructor. Kalah began her apprenticeship with Giwayen Mata, an all-female drum and dance company, in September 2015.
She is a lover of dance, with formal training in ballet, contemporary and West African dance styles. She enjoys family time with her two sons, Deuce, a 6 year old boarder collie lab mix and Scruffy, an 8 year old jack russell terrier. Kalah is known for her amazing energy and contagious smile. She is passionate about spreading joy through the ASA! movement with a special focus on those who may be a little shy when it comes to dance, fitness and just letting loose! In the words of Ms. Kalah
“Don’t be scared your whole life and come ASA!”
