Dory Kyrias started her dance training at the age of three. She is proficient in many styles of dance including tap, ballet, jazz, music theatre, modern, pointe and lyrical. Performing and touching the heart of others through dance has always been in her blood. At an early age she was able to perform with such inspiring performers as The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and The Monkees and in Mary Kay productions. After graduating from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts she attended Oklahoma City University where she performed with the American Spirit Dance Company and the O.C.U. Pep Dancers. She was in Casa Manana’s 42nd Street. Mrs. Dory served as Coach to the Lady Lynx Dance team in Augusta, GA; the Baby Backs Dance and Promotional team for the Iowa Chops Hockey Team in Des Moines, IA, and the Assistant Director of the Inaugural Ice Breakers Dance team for the Texas Tornado Hockey Team. She was also a member and guest choreographer of the Rhythm Junkies Tap Company performing in such venues as Third Coast Rhythm Project and LA Tapfest.
As a teacher she has trained many dancers to perform on Broadway, become Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, Dallas Mavs dancers, Rhythmic Souls dancers and even to open their own studios.
Dory continues to expand her knowledge by attending tap festivals and dance conventions regularly where she studies from legends such as Lady “Di”anne Walker, Robert Reed, Sarah Petronio, Roxanne Butterfly, Lane Alexander, Debbie Bray, Jason Samuels Smith, Derick Grant, Bril Barrett, Dr. Jeni LeGon, Jason Janas, Chloe Arnold, Sarah Reich, Kaitlin Harris, Keira Leverton and many more.
