Kandace grew up in the Atascadero area and danced in companies with June Greenawalt from a young age. Kandace assisted June in teaching Hip Hop classes and grew to love that dance form. She then taught under Traci Rossi at Motions Studio for a number of years until she was accepted into UNLV and graduated with a degree in hotel management with an emphasis on meetings and events. She worked at the same time at a dance wear store in Las Vegas becoming a certified Capezio point shoe specialist. Kandace moved back to the Central Coast to be close to her parents and re-connected with her former mentor and the rest of her friends at Artistry in Motion and feels right at home here.
