Kerrie's broad background includes performing, teaching, and choreographing (in the U.S. and abroad). She is a well-trained and accomplished professional who has been teaching children and adults for over 20 years in all levels and styles of dance. She received her BFA in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Dance Performance from Northern Illinois University and has worked extensively as a teaching artist for various communities including work with under-privileged and special needs children and teens in public schools and day care, and with inmates in women's prisons.

Kerrie toured with the NYC based Avodah Dance Ensemble performing and teaching workshops to children and adults all across the country. "The Forgiveness Project" and "Balancing Act" were two of the works Kerrie helped create - their goal being to build community through dance. She has also choreographed for shows, festivals, and special events throughout the Chicagoland area including: “The Wizard of Oz”, “The Drunkard”, “Little Shop of Horrors”, “Alas! Alack! Zorro is back!”, “Creation/Evolution”.


Caroline graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a double major in Dance and Business with a focus on Entrepreneurship in 2018. Beginning her dance career at the age of three in Italy, she has trained in numerous competing studios throughout the United States. Being the daughter of a father in the military, she was afforded the opportunity to travel to a surplus of studios around the globe. Said experiences have given her a unique perspective that combines teachings from dance instructors around the world. A few of the aforementioned recent instructors include, but are not limited to, Paige Cunningham, Darrell Jones, Carrie Hanson, and Krista Ellensohn. Some of her recent performances include dancing with Visceral Dance Company in their show, Within, in November 2021. She has also competed at World of Dance and Prelude in Chicago, performing with hip hop company BANG BANG! Additionally, she has danced with renowned hip hop company, BOOM CRACK, under the artistic direction of Trae Turner. Since she was young, Caroline has always known that she’s had a passion for empowering youth through the medium of teaching. Though she flourished in the role of ‘dancer’, nothing could compare to her blossoming into the roles of ‘teacher’ and ‘choreographer’. Moreover and having grown up in the world of dance, Caroline has witnessed a surplus of teaching styles as a student, colleague, and lead facilitator; with this exposure, she’s embarked on a journey towards understanding how kids learn cognitively, and particularly how the body learns and adapts to movement through dance.

Throughout her dance career in Chicago, Julia has trained in numerous styles of dance including modern, ballet, contemporary, hip hop, West African, improvisation, and dance composition. Julia is originally from Frankfort, IL where she trained, danced competitively, and gained teaching experience in technique and creative movement at a local studio. Julia is beyond excited to continue growing as a dance educator and spread her passion for dance at Forevermore!


Ms.Kaelyn has been a part of the Forevermore family for nearly half of her life! She grew up dancing at the studio under the training of owner and artistic director Ms.Kerrie. Kaelyn has traveled around the country performing at events, competing in dance competitions, going to dance conventions and learning from the world’s greatest choreographers. Kaelyn’s first experience educating dance was when she was only 10 years old. As a student at Forevermore, Kaelyn spent 3 years as a teaching assistant, where she learned how to teach young children the basis of dance. Studying at Dominican University, Kaelyn was able to work at Forevermore as a part of the administration team for 3 years. Her passion for teaching however, never stopped. She is so happy to be sharing her love for dance with her students, and hopes that they will fall in love with dance the same way she did, here at Forevermore.


Payton started dancing at Forevermore at the age of 3 and has grown up in the studio. After graduating high school she grew from a student here at Forevermore to a valued team member. She has been a part of our administrative team for 4 years now and currently attends Triton College pursuing a degree in photography.


Ms. Rylie is our Music and Theater Manager here at Forevermore. Rylie is a Chicago-based actor, dancer, and singer in addition to being a teaching artist. She's currently grooving as a member on Inside Out Professional Hip Hop Crew in the city. Ms. Rylie currently teaches the theater classes, acro, and ballet and teaches private lessons in various dance styles, acting, and MT voice. She received her B.A. in Musical Theater from North Central College, but originally hails from Indianapolis, IN. Graduating into the pandemic meant that performing live professionally wasn't much of an option. Teaching started as a soft place to land and evolved into an equally fulfilling passion of hers. Her favorite part of teaching youth theater and dance is the spark of excitement that she sees in her students when they learn something new or succeed at a developing skill. She's so delighted to call Forevermore her new home.


Adele is a new member of the Forevermore team teaching primarily our early childhood classes! Prior to teaching at the studio, Adele has been a lifetime student, growing up in the studio for the last 16 years! She is super excited for her first season as a teacher! Being a part of the Forevermore team has been an ultimate goal of hers, and she is grateful to get this opportunity to teach the new generation of dancers, and to learn from the other amazing teachers at Forevermore. She currently attends Dominican University studying sociology, hoping to conduct research about dance and culture while she teaches at the studio. When she is not teaching or studying, she is running her small business, Crochet by Adele, or even taking a class at Forevermore. Her biggest goal working at Forevermore is to not only teach young kids the beginning foundations of dance but to teach them love and inclusion in and outside the studio.


Countertenor, composer, and music director Kyle Anthony Cortés happily serves the Forevermore community as a private lessons instructor teaching in voice, guitar, bass, piano, and ukulele.

As a Chicago based teaching artist, he’s taught a range of courses including “Acting the Song”, “Music Theory”, “Vocal Performance Fundamentals”, “Treble Choir”, and served as a guest clinician for string ensembles and wind quintets.

Cortés’ most recent artistic endeavors include composing and music directing the comedy show “Portrait of a Bunch of Ladies on Fire”, music directing the play “In the Red and Brown Water”, and composing and recording the song series “Passing Through” with the Maréz combo band based out of central Florida.

Known primarily to the stage for his comedic charm, Cortés has sung in roles such as the Witch in Hänsel und Gretel, Don Basilio in Le nozze di Figaro, and Mayor Upfold in Britten’s Albert Herring. And so, it was with much anticipation that the dark and twisted role of Emperor Lucio Silla, of Handel’s Silla, marked his official summer 2021 debut as a budding countertenor, transitioning him from leggiero tenor to countertenor repertoire.

Cortés completed his masters degree with honors in vocal performance at DePaul School of Music studying under Dr. Viktoria Vizin. He relocated to Chicago after having graduated cum laude with two Bachelor of Music degrees from the University of Florida in vocal performance and composition.

His other formal training includes a summer of private research in composition and combination-tones in the live-coding environment MAX/MSP at the Mozarteum Conservatory in Salzburg, Austria under their director of electro-acoustic composition, Dr. Achim Bornhöft, along with six-months of study with Dr. Jourdan L. Howell’s Palm Beach Opera Apprentice Studio. His interest in classical voice and composition led him to join the artistic team at Vizin-Production and Starr-Editing, Media Group as their composer-in-residence and young artist for the 2020-21 season, focusing on digital media productions of art song and opera.
