Candice Kaminski began competing in dance at the age of 5. Her love of dance and performing continued to grow at a young age and into High School. In High School she was a cheerleader, Go Vikings! and also choreographed for musicals and show choir. She attended Slippery Rock University and earned a BA in dance. Here, her work was chosen to be adjudicated at the American College Dance Festival and selected to perform in the formal concerts 2 years in a row. Her junior year, she received the Choreographer of the Year award and Dance Major of the Year her senior year. After college, she taught dance at local dance studios and Dance Alloy, auditioned whenever she could and danced professionally with Latshaw Productions, Caution Crew Productions and Eloquence Performance Company in NY. One audition landed her in Chicago working with The Jump Rhythm Jazz Project as a scholarship student.
While in Chicago, she worked part time in a photography studio. Soon, she found herself back in school, learning how to create things in a much different light. Upon completion of her photography certificate, she opened her own business, CLiK Studios, in 2009. With her main focus being dance photography, her work has been published in Dance Spirit Magazine along with several other fitness magazines and dance books. After having two beautiful boys, she started teaching again at local dance studios and realized how much she missed moving and dancing.
A note from Candice: With the incredible support of my husband throughout my entire career, dance mentors, friends, family, and dance family, the dream is real. I am grateful to be able to do this in the town I grew up in. My hope is that it will bring life and positive energy into our community one shuffle step at a time at, The Dance CLiK.
