The 5 C’s of Shore Stars!


We are passionate about giving your child the confidence to dance freely and happily in front of others. Our goal is to help your dancer find their own confidence and pride in themselves as they learn to be brave and strong in class and at events and performances.


We promise to always be consistent and structured in how we present information and communicate with you (the parents) AND how we teach your children. This includes our prices, policies, lesson plans, and teaching techniques.


We promise to always aim to inspire, ignite passion, and keep your dancer feeling excited to come back each class. Your child is a part of creative lessons, activities, learning styles, songs, studio events, contests, and more. We want them to be imaginative and creative with us as they develop a love for dance and the arts.


It’s all about the smiles! We are passionate about creating a place where your child and your family will feel connected, welcomed, important, and part of something special. You will be greeted warmly and can have a seat on the comfy couch, grab a cup of complimentary coffee/tea, and chat with the other families all while watching your dancer and their friends from the TV monitor in the lobby.


It is our belief that childhood should not be rushed. Your dancer will not move too quickly through our curriculum, meaning that they will not learn any steps or “tricks” that they are not developmentally ready for or might put stress on their physical development as they grow. We strongly believe in injury prevention, proper technique, and repetition/practice for muscle memory. Your child will always be given age appropriate songs, costumes, and activities. 

Miss Kelly: (Director/Teacher)

Hi Shore Stars! I’m Miss Kelly, the director of Shore Stars Dance Academy, a mother to my 7 year old son Gavin, and a certified k-12 teacher & dance educator. I’ve been dancing since 2 years old and teaching since 15 years old. My gymnastics/dance team growing up was called the “Shore Stars” and I decided to name my dance studio in its honor since it brought me countless childhood memories. I hope to inspire and create a new generation of “Shore Stars”. I studied dance in college, am a certified instructor with USA Gymnastics, and a certified Rhythm Works Integrative Dance Educator for special needs students. I have over 17 years experience as a public school teacher and will bring your children excellent classroom structure and creative lessons here at Shore Stars. I am very excited to see your dancers working together, being imaginative, growing in confidence, and increasing their passion for dance. As a mother, I knows how precious your children are to you and will bring them love, encouragement, and the inspiration that we all want for our children.
