About two years ago, at the age of twenty, Killian turned in her well-worn ballet pointe shoes for a pair of cowboy boots and a guitar. She spent her entire life in ballet studios all over the United States grooming herself for a professional ballet career. The result was two-fold: a contract with a professional ballet company at Ballet Arizona AND the distinct realization that she was much happier playing her guitar and singing in her hot car during daily lunch breaks. The lunch breaks in the car turned into cathartic songwriting sessions, often times making Killian late to ballet rehearsal. It was a difficult decision for Killian to turn her back on a lifetime of dance training and ballet performance, but while she appreciated the numerous opportunities and lessons learned during her life as a professional ballerina, Killian learned that dance did not feed her soul: music did.
