Kelly is so excited to start her journey as a mentor with ZZ! As a young dancer, she studied classical ballet and modern technique as well as commercial jazz and contemporary dance. She performed in the Nutcracker, attended Jacob’s Pillow Modern Dance Festival and spent summers in LA studying Jazz. While attending University of the Arts she began teaching and continued after graduating. She has two beautiful children and can’t wait to share her love of dance and music with the ZZ family!
Where did you go to school? What did you major in?
I went to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I majored in Ballet and Modern Dance. I received my BFA in Modern Dance in 2001.
What is your greatest dance memory?
My greatest dance memories all took place in the classroom. I love performing, but there’s something remarkable about the work and reward that takes place in a dance class. When a dancer feels supported and accepted by their peers, real creativity is possible!
Why are you excited to teach at ZZ DANCE?
I look forward to being a ZZ Mentor because I believe in the potential of every single student to learn and grow through kindness and movement. ZZ is exactly the place I want to share my love for dance and music!
What is your favorite TV show?
