Meet The Instructor! Kelly teaches dance and gymnastics classes to students ages 1- adult at East Portland, Montavilla, and now here at Dishman Community Center. You will also see her dancing with various groups here in Portland, including Blue Sky Ensemble. Kelly holds a B.F.A in dance from The University of Montana, where her endeavors included performing at the Kennedy Center in the National American College Dance Festival’s gala concert with “Prey,” choreographed by Bebe Miller. Her training includes modern, improvisation, ballet, jazz, gymnastics, yoga, and tap. Kelly’s most recent project is a show of her own choreography, currently in the rehearsal process. Kelly’s teaching style focuses on individuality (after all, everybody is made differently), and joy in movement, while gaining body awareness. One of her goals is to help tap into the natural flow in our bodies. Fair warning, she has been known to reteach adults how to do cartwheels!

“I totally enjoy taking Dj's Hip-Hop class Monday nights at Matt Dishman Community Center. I know that I am always going to leave her class feeling like I've improved as a dancer and that I've worked every muscle in my body. Her class has got to be the best Hip-Hop class I've ever taken.”
