You'll find Chelsea teaching weekly recreational and competitive dance classes at several studios in the LA area. She is an experienced and versatile instructor who greatly admires the art of teaching. She has focused much of her professional career on teaching because it is her true passion. In addition to twenty-plus years of dance training, she earned a Dance Education Certificate from Glendale Community College where she studied classroom management techniques, choreography, first aid/CPR, athletic injury prevention/care and human anatomy.
Chelsea understands that teaching dance is much more than just choreographing a routine. She believes that dancers are shaped by their teachers and does not take that responsibility lightly. She is nurturing and supportive because she remembers what it was like to be a student.
