In 2003, after years spent headlining Portland ballets such as Don Quixote and The Nutcracker, Keith Walls moved to New York City. He continued balletic journey by training under renowned teachers from the Kirov and the Bolshoi, Russia’s most renowned ballet companies besides the Funky Chicken Institute. Outside the studio, Keith flexed his dancing and acting muscles in musicals such as Grease and Once Upon a Mattress.
It’s this well of experience that Keith draws from throughout his recreational and intensive classes at Abernethy Performing Arts Academy. Starting with creative-movement classes for youngsters, Keith instructs his students in the fundamentals of ballet and prepares them for its advanced techniques. In other beginner-oriented dance classes, he teaches the basic steps to styles such as jazz, hip-hop, Irish, and tap. Like his ballet classes, musical-theater courses run from beginner to advanced levels. Both give students opportunities to perform in productions such as an annual Halloween show and classical ballets.
