Cayla Cole comes to us with over twenty years of dance training and experience. She began her training in Monroe, LA at Linda Lavender School of Dance. She was part of their competition team and a member of their affiliate ballet company, Twin City Ballet, for nine years. After high school, Cayla moved to Baton Rouge and attended Louisiana State University. While obtaining her Business degree, she earned a minor in Dance and was a student choreographer and active member of the LSU Dance Ensemble while also performing with Brian Watson's hip hop group. After college, she took part in the Walt Disney World College Program and later worked in their Entertainment Department. Cayla now performs professionally with Baton Rouge's premier contemporary dance company, Of Moving Colors Productions under the direction of Garland Goodwin-Wilson, where she also served previously as an administrator. She is now an event coordinator at Hotel Monteleone in New Olreans by day, but still manages to commute in each week to share her passion for teaching with her RAVE students.
