Hilary Kaplan was born in South Africa. A child prodigy in various styles of dancing, she trained with the late Reina Berman (ballet) and with Mercedes Molina (Spanish dancing). For a number of years, she won most of the first prizes in Ballet, Spanish, Character and Modern in all the major dance competitions in Johannesburg. Having done outstandingly well in all her Royal Academy of Dance examinations including Solo Seal, she was awarded the RAD Bursary, which enabled her to complete her training at the Royal Ballet School in London. She then returned to South Africa where she danced with PACT and CAPAB. She married and settled down to open her own highly successful ballet school. While teaching she completed a BA at the University of Witwatersrand majoring in languages.

She was subsequently appointed a Dual Examiner and Tutor for the Royal Academy of Dance – and a Dual Examiner for the Spanish Dance Society – and she is a sought-after examiner and teacher all over the world, appearing regularly on the faculty of international summer schools and seminars. In 1996 she moved to Australia with her husband and five daughters. While examining in that year, she met Archibald McKenzie, with whom she conducted a number of courses for the RAD and others from 1996 on, and with whom she went on to found Alegria in 1998.
