Ms. Chelsea began instructing dance in 2005 after extensive training with various choreographers and teachers throughout California and Nevada. She has earned a B.A. in Liberal Studies focusing in elementary education and has also been an instructor with Artists~in~Schools; a program through the San Joaquin County Office of Education that brings the performing arts into the classroom.
Chelsea's passion for dance started as a young child and her hard work and dedication earned her many opportunities to perform and become a teacher which inspired her dreams of owning her own dance studio one day. Her everlasting desire to learn more made this a reality and she still believes that learning never ends. It is this very reason that she travels to train with top choreographers and teachers of the dance world. She hopes to bring this type of opportunity and the knowledge she gains to local students who may not be able to travel and experience this level of training on their own.
