Miss Kellie began her dance training at the age of three years old in Oxford, Pennsylvania. While training in dance, she earned her B.S. in Kinesiology at West Chester University, and worked as a fitness specialist and in cardiac rehabilitation throughout the Delaware Valley.
In addition to her 31 years of extensive dance training, Miss Kellie has been teaching for over 26 years throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New York. She spent 4 years in upstate New York co-directing the Leslie School of dance and co-founding the non-profit “New Heights Dance Theatre”, consisting of more than 60 members from around New York State. While in New York, she also directed the ballet program for “Dancer’s Alley”, located in Horseheads, New York. Her “grand” finale before leaving New York was the choreography for “Nutcracker in Motion” a ballet and jazzed-up version of the nutcracker. Many of her students have pursued dance careers and have made dance part of their life!!
Chesco Dance Center is the result of over 40 years of hard-work, determination, and dreams! Miss Kellie strives for excellence in her students and hopes to instill them with a love of dance while working hard to reach their dreams.
