Had To Be There



Kelly was four years old at her first dance recital. When the lights went down after her number, one teeny sequin-clad child remained on stage. It was in that moment that a lifelong love affair with dancing began.

It would be years later, in 1996, that Kelly was first asked to move to the other side of the stage. A local elementary school's asked her to come in and choreograph for their production. She jumped at the opportunity and fell completely in love with teaching dance. She maintained a relationship with that same drama club for two full decades! Kelly later went on to establish the first dance program at one of Litchfield county's prestigious boarding schools.

Kelly is a firm believer that everyone can dance - so don't let those two left feet get in your way!

"Human beings are born with the instinct to express themselves through movement. Even before he could communicate with words, primitive man was dancing to the beat of his own heart."
- Bob Fosse -
