Kerry Kapaku

Originally from Westford, MA, Kerry Kapaku began taking ballet lessons at age 4 at the Acton School of Ballet, and continued her training during her high school years at NH Dance Theater under the direction of Patrisha Lavoie. Kerry danced as a company member with the Southern NH Youth Ballet for over three years, during which she performed leading roles in many classical ballets including Snow Queen and Dew Drop Fairy in The Nutcracker and Madora in Le Corsaire. While dancing with SNHYB, Kerry also attended and performed at three Regional Dance America festivals.

In 2010, Kerry relocated to Columbus, OH to study in BalletMet Columbus’s trainee program to kick-start her career in dance. While dancing at BalletMet, Kerry trained with Susan Dromisky, Gerard Charles, and Dimitri Suslov, and performed in many company and academy performances. After realizing a love for modern and contemporary dance while at BalletMet, Kerry proceeded to enroll as a dance major in the Department of Dance at The Ohio State University. 

Kerry graduated with a BFA in dance performance and education in 2014, with Magna Cum Laude honors and Distinction in Dance. During her time at Ohio State, Kerry studied ballet and contemporary dance with teachers such as Rodney Brown, Karen Elliot, Daniel Roberts, and Susan Hadley.  She also performed in three faculty-choreographed shows in works created by Susan Hadley, Melanie Bales, and Jimmy Ortiz. In addition to performing, Kerry also has a passion for teaching and has taught at many studios in New England as well as throughout the Midwest. 

After spending a year on contract with Ballet Theatre of Indiana, Kerry is now performing with Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre in Carmel, IN.
