 contemporary fusion 

Contemporary Fusion is more than a masterclass.  It is a creative exploration that encourages dancers to discover and embrace their individuality.  Chelsea’s choreography combines traditional contemporary dance technique with pedestrian movement, soulful expression and exhilarating music.  She emphasizes musicality, intention and storytelling with a focus on being authentic.  Rather than emulating other dancers, she encourages dancers to find their own voice.  She builds a sense of community and creates a supportive, safe place for dancers to explore and develop.

 heels workshops 

Most professional dance jobs require dancers to wear heels at some point.  Dancing in heels is more than just wearing different shoes. It requires training, practice and respect for the art form.  Dancers should be well trained in jazz and ballet before learning to dance in heels.

 

Chelsea has experience dancing professionally in heels and continually trains with LA's top choreographers.  She understands the importance of technique, style, intention and storytelling. When working with teenage dancers, she is mindful of age-appropriate music and choreography.

 

She wants to help dancers expand their dance skills and grow as performers but, more importantly, she encourages her students to love themselves, love their body and find strength and confidence in their femininity.   It is not just about being sexy, it is about dancing with confidence (and proper technique, of course.)

 

The movement is jazz/funk based and focuses on building core strength, lines, balance, weight placement in heels, making smooth transitions, level changes, and building a strong, confident feminine sex appeal!

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Age-appropriate music and choreography

  • Encourages students to build self-confidence

  • Emphasizes safety, style and proper technique
