Kelly Russell

(Kelly will be your regular teacher)

 Hi There! My name is Kelly Russell, aka ‘Ms. Kelly’, and I have been sharing my absolute love of dance for over 20 years! I started out dancing at the age of 3, danced all the way through school and went on to earn a dance scholarship to the University of Texas in Austin. I have danced professionally in companies throughout Texas and Colorado, but teaching and sharing my passion for dance, is my FAVORITE! I enjoy exploring all types of movement and dance, but have a real connection to Creative Movement, Ballet, Modern, and Jazz. I have been teaching for over 20 years in studios, schools and preschools throughout Texas and Colorado, and enjoy working with all ages, from 2 years old to adults. When I am not in the studio, you can be sure I am dancing, singing, and playing at home with my own 2 kids. I am so thrilled to be here and can’t wait to dance with you!

Meet Your Teachers!
