The son of a former beauty queen and modeling agency owner, Kyle Ean Haggerty literally grew up in the modeling, pageantry and performing arts industries. Haggerty is a former model and 9-time United States dance champion. He was a principal dancer in the movie “Blues Brothers” and toured with Broadway musicals A Chorus Line, Cats and 42nd Street.
Haggerty has been coaching male and female pageant contestants on the local, state, national, and international levels since 1989. He has produced an extensive list of outstanding pageant winners and many have advanced to careers in modeling and the performing arts, most notably Miss America 2010 (Caressa Cameron), Miss United States 2011, Miss Teen United States 2011, Ms. United States 2011, and Miss United States 2012.
His reputation as a leading national pageant consultant has helped him develop a small screen reality show presence. Kyle was cast as the “Camp Director” on Season 5 of the Simple Life with Nicole Ritchie and Paris Hilton, a “Pageant Party Planner” on Bravo’s Party Party, a Pageant Coach on two episodes of MTV's Emmy-nominated series MADE, and served on the entertainment industry experts' panel alongside Supermodel Beverly Johnson on an episode of the Dr. Phil Show.
