Kelley is originally from New Hampshire and started dancing at age 5. She trained in ballet, tap, and jazz for 20 years at a studio in Massachusetts where she had the opportunity to perform at Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, and on a Caribbean Cruise Line cruise. She has also taken many master classes and attended conventions that were taught by some of the choreographers you see on TV today. In 1995, Kelley completed the Dance Education Training Course offered by the Dance Teachers’ Club of Boston. Since then she has enjoyed teaching children and adults at studios in Massachusetts, Nashville, and now here in Vancouver.
