Chloe Kuka

Brooksville, Florida

BFA Class of 2021

Where did you train?

I was four years old when I discovered my love of dance at Charlene’s School of Dance in Spring Hill, Florida. At age fourteen, I began training in classical ballet at All American Dance Factory and Classical Ballet School in Tampa, Florida, where I also studied contemporary, jazz, tap, acrobatics, and hip-hop.

What inspires you?

Experiencing the slow transformation of hard work into results is very motivating to me. I am also inspired by music, particularly classical or instrumental music that is multilayered and complex. I love the fun and intriguing process of translating each strand of sound into movement.

Describe yourself in three words.
