Monday was a huge night for Kayli Konarski, a 2016 Durand graduate. After moving to Las Vegas following graduation to attend the Theater Arts Preparatory School ("TAPS"), a six-month trade school designed to help young dancers transition from competition dancing to a professional career, Konarski landed a full-time dancer spot in one of Las Vegas' most popular shows. Last night was her first on the job; Konarski told Durand Now she'll be doing two Vegas! The Show performances each night, five nights a week.
