Kendall Keating-Hardy has become one of the most well-established dance instructors in Central for over a decade, having started teaching at the Center of Performing Arts (COPA), which transitioned into The Coda and now RAVE. Kendall began her dance training in Central at BREC in 1998 and then moved over to the Center of Performing Arts where she experienced most of her training under Jeanne Bonaventure. She competed with the COPA dance troupe for 8 years having won numerous awards. Mrs. Kendall was also a proud member of the Central High School Kittens for 3 years, and she has choreographed for Central High School Musical Theater Productions as well. Mrs. Kendall continued her dance education at Louisiana State University while completing her degree in political science. She has since graduated from LSU with her Masters in Business, but she still finds time to share her sparkle with the Baton Rouge and Central dance communities. She taught dance for the after-school program at St. James' Episcopal School, as well as through Louisiana's premiere modern company Of Moving Colors Productions "Kick It Out" program. She is also a founding member and performer with Dance Collective Baton Rouge. She is eagerly anticipating the arrival of her first child this summer.
