“I love teaching at ArtWorks because the teachers I had when I attended the studio impacted my life so significantly. They always provided a safe and loving space for me and my friends, and I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to do the same for my students.”
Haley Kinnard grew up in Norman, OK. Her passion for the performing arts started at a young age. She started at ArtWorks Academy as a first-grader, making her one of AWA’s very first students in their inaugural year. She continued to study at ArtWorks through her high school graduation. Some of her favorite shows at ArtWorks Academy include The Drowsy Chaperone (Drowsy), Little Women (Jo), Big Fish (The Witch), and Oliver (Nancy). She also enjoyed her years with the Relevé Dance Company competing alongside her friends. Her desire to have a career in the arts led her to the University of Central Oklahoma, where she is currently pursuing her Bachelors of Music in Musical Theatre. Haley has been integral to the development of our satellite locations and Junior Players classes. She serves as the Music Director for Junior Players alongside her close friend and fellow faculty member, Mica Harkey. As a private voice instructor Haley loves being able to give her students her full attention and watch them grow into better and more confident singers.
