From a young age, Kaitlyn has loved singing and has always had a passion for musical theatre. At the age of 10 Kaitlyn took up vocal training, leading her to complete an array of singing exams in contemporary voice and musical theatre.
Her love for the performing arts was ignited in 2017 after taking the stage and performing in her very first musical. Kaitlyn then went on to further explore her love for theatre by joining the Centerstage Performing Arts Academy in Geelong. During her time at Centrestage she was involved in their productions of ‘Starlight Express’, playing the role of Duvay, and ‘High School Musical’, where she played the role of Gabriella Montez.
Kaitlyn was also deeply involved in her schools performing arts department (Saint Ignatius College Geelong). Kaitlyn was blessed to be involved in many of the College’s productions, performing as featured ensemble in ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Tomika in ‘School of Rock’ and Nessarose in ‘Wicked’. She also performed many group and solo performances with the College choir and recently finished her Unit 3/4 studies in VCE Music Performance, leading her to be awarded the ‘Senior Rising Star Performing Arts Award’.
Ever since she performed in her very first musical, Kaitlyn has always been eager to teach others the world of performing arts. She is very excited to be teaching at Bellarine Performing Arts and hopes to help the next generation find their passion for theatre.
