Hello my name is Kay-Ann Ward, thank you for visiting my virtual home.
I'm a multi-faceted creator, performer, educator, group fitness instructor, movement artist, guided healer and embodied transformation coach.
I use dance, movement, self exploration, self expression as well as embodied ancestral and somatic practices to help my clients, tap into their inner power, connect to themselves, practice healthy self healing, stand in their truth, deepen their connection to their sensuality, sexuality and spirituality so they can awaken ignite and embody the fullest and truest expression of themselves.
My work pulls from my Afro-Caribbean ancestral wisdom. I have been blessed to have gain access to these teachings and practices, so that I can share them with you.
To date I have helped and coached 200+ women become more confident, feel sexy in their skin, discover parts of themselves they didn’t know existed, shift their energy and heal traumatic wounds through the power of connecting to their womb and feminine truth. I have coached and mentored dancers, teaching them the ins and outs of becoming and being a valued teacher, instructor, choreographer as well as a top performer.
I have 15+ years helping my clients transform their lives. I love what I do. Everything I share and teach are from first hand experience. If I have not experienced it myself, I do not teach it.
I am committed to helping you blossom so you can see, feel and embrace your full existence and your greatness. And trust me the world needs what you have to offer.

If you would like to be part of this space, that allows us to be unapologetic and explore our truth. Then you are in the right place.
I first met Kay-Ann when a friend suggested I try the Unruly gyal program that she faciliates.. After the first class, I was in awe of her. Her ability to create a safe space while allowing women to explore their true selves was remarkable. Before starting Unruly gyal, I was not comfortable being sexy or embracing female dancehall. As a teacher, she encouraged me to not be so demanding of myself; she made me realized that I didn’t need to succumb to societal pressures to be perfect. She allowed me to be explore parts of myself I did not even know existed.
Kay-Ann works hard to ensure the women she teaches in her classes and/or workshops feel confident enough to be unapologetically themselves.
As a mentor I look up to her. She encouraged me to not seek validation from people and forced me to dig deep within myself to explore my potential. She took time to schedule meetings with me to show me my
need to adjust the expectations and perceptions I had of myself. She also gave me practical tools to be able to accomplish my goals.
Kay-Ann was always there to celebrate my achievements – no matter how big or small. A true Queen who celebrates and uplifts other Queens.
You want to learn the essence of Caribbean dance while bettering yourself; Kay-Ann is the person you want as a teacher.
I discovered Kay-Ann and Unruly Gyal during the early weeks of the pandemic quarantine, and was thrilled to learn I could attend her classes from home.
To say that this was the highlight of my week would be an understatement! I looked forward to those Sundays as they would serve to shed tense days of being alone with the uncertainty of the times, and leave you refreshed for the week to come.
Kay-Ann's vibrant, fun and down-to-earth spirit is so potent that it resonates right through the screen. These classes are not only about learning steps and sequences, but instill connection, embodiment, and growth within.
Kay-Ann holds space for her students and makes you feel supported. She really cares! If that isn't enough, she also is incredibly generous and often offers free content to keep people moving even when they can't afford to be with her in class. Thank you Kay-Ann!
