Kalie Hunter
Actor, Dancer, Singer
“The very first thing you notice about Kalie Hunter when she steps out on to the boards is how much she is in love with being there. Put that together with her abilities and her extremely advanced technique and what you get is a performer, who will give a powerful and passionate performance every time.”
– Phil Nero, Choreographer
