At 16 she opted to go to Doreen Bird College in London following the offer of placements at many of the top performing arts colleges in the UK.
Kerry finished college with her Dance Diploma and all the Teaching Associates in Ballet, Tap & Modern, and went immediately into her first professional contract aboard many Cruise Ships.
Some years later and following a very successful performing career Kerry founded K.P.S Productions. To this day the company is responsible for the choreography and production of many shows in luxury hotels and cruise liners around Europe. K.P.S Productions regularly hosts seminars for entertainment teams assisting with skills development and production enhancement.
K.P.S Productions has worked with many companies over the years including Thomson UK, TUI, Grecotel, Louis Cruise Lines and more. Theatres, hotels, cruise liners, schools, casinos and concerts are all venues within the K.P.S Productions remit.
Industry experience gained through a life time of training, and many years of performing, choreographing and producing with K.P.S Productions is applied in the classes and productions at Telford Academy Of Performing Arts.
