The Choreographer’s Showcase featured guest dancers/choreographers from around the country who worked with KO students for ten weeks producing a final show in the Roberts Theater. A true workaholic, Kyle teaches in both the Middle School and Upper School, in addition to holding his collegiate professorship at several Connecticut colleges/universities. You may recognize Kyle from his accomplished work within Western Connecticut State University, Post University, Goodwin College, and the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts.

At the college level, Kyle's students have also gained acceptance to elite musical theater universities: Baldwin Wallace, Shenandoah, Ithaca, New York University Tisch and the University of Michigan. Kyle, a performer himself who is trained in the Sanford Meisner technique, continues to be inspired by the creativity and hunger for theatrical training at Kingswood Oxford.
