I have taught and choreographed professionally for almost 8 years, and started dancing 21 years ago. I am passionate about teaching the technique to dancing, but also how to move their body with style. I have trained and worked with some of the top choreographers in LA and have a large amount of experience in the dance industry. I can teach jazz, technique, hip hop, jazz funk, lyrical, and contemporary.With a background in yoga, I ensure you are listening to your body to prevent injuries and having proper form. I love to help kids and adults build their confidence, brand themselves as dancers, and give them top training with the years of knowledge I have.

Shelley is an amazing teacher! She is always so positive and supportive, and the exercises and songs she has provided have really helped me develop as a singer and musician. As someone who picked up singing after playing a wind instrument for years, I really appreciate how she's able to explain the purpose of each exercise and what aspect of my singing it is working to improve.
Allie B.
Shelley has been the most supportive and encouraging instructor I've ever had. I am always comfortable enough to mess up and try again, and she has given me so many tips that have proven useful for my voice. We've been doing weekly online lessons, and I can't recommend her enough!
