“Chelsea Vick taught my daughter Anna her first solo for a competition this year. We picked her to choreograph it because we always have noticed the small creative details she puts in her dances that make them so uniquely her dances. She is very loving and very considerate and thoughtful to each of her students she teaches and we are grateful for her.” - a grateful dance mom
