On Air Personality
Kitty Phetla is a dancer, model and radio personality. She hosts the weekend show, Overnight with Kitty from 12-3am Saturdays and Sundays on Radio 2000.
Born and bred in the historic township of Alexandra, Kitty, who started classical dance training from an early age, matriculated at The National School of the Arts in 2001. Her dance training began in primary school with Martin Schönberg. As a student, she was part of dance productions such as “Giselle”, “Voila!” and “Sollopa”. As one of the founding members of Schönberg’s Ballet Theatre Afrikan (1998 – 2002), she received many awards and took part in international ballet competitions such as the Prix de Lausanne, the Cecchetti Ballet Competition in Australia and the Helsinki Ballet Competition. She obtained her Cecchetti International Teachers Qualification in 2002.
Her extensive travelling has seen her grace the stages in Amsterdam, Switzerland, Australia, Dubai, Germany, England, Zimbabwe and more recently Russia. Her choreographic credits include “Jolie” for an international dance competition, “Within” for the 2008 Arts Alive and “Carmina Burana” for South African Mzansi Ballet.
Kitty has graced the pages of many magazines because of her modeling work. These include spreads in Elle Magazine, True Love, Drum Wedding Magazine and Destiny Magazine. Her advertorial work includes the rebranding of Surf Washing Powder, Woolworths, Edgars Fitness, and the Virgin Money Show as well as being one of the “water babes” for BONAQUA.
More notably, Kitty was featured in an advert for First National Bank, SABC TV License and she was one of the judges for the local dance reality show, Turn It Out. She also did a series of adverts for the rebranding of LUX Beauty Soap in Asia.
Another feather on Kitty’s hat is that of a radio presenter. She has been with Alex.FM for the last four years, presenting the late night lounge music show on Sunday where she not only compiled the music herself but also acted as content producer.
Kitty is an artistic individual with a penchant for the finer things in life ranging from her choices in fine dining, elegant clothing and sophisticated music choices. With an engaging personality, she embodies a regal individuality that exudes on live stage, television, radio and print-media.
