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.
