Bachelor of Management Studies/Bachelor of Laws (Management)

Waikato Management School

Dance

A passion for dancing has led to a Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship for Kaylee Bird. The former Otumoetai College student is now in her second year of studying a conjoint Bachelor of Management Studies and a Bachelor of Laws.

She says one of the reasons she chose to study at Waikato was that it was the only university in New Zealand where she could continue both dance and academic studies.

Kaylee has been dancing since she was four years old and mainly trains in classical ballet and contemporary dance. In 2013, Kaylee was accepted into three dance schools in Australia; the prestigious Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching Academy where she spent a term in 2014 experiencing full-time dancing before returning to her studies, Queensland University of Technology Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance Performance) and the Queensland Dance School of Excellence.

In 2013 she was awarded honours in both her Advanced 2 BBO Ballet and Contemporary exams, and she was nominated to compete in the 2012 NZ Young Performer of the Year Awards.
