Kelsey Nelson

Jazz, lyrical, contemporary, strength & conditioning & stretch

Kelsey has been traveling North America educating dancers on how to be a complete artist from the inside out since 2016. She has dug into what developing artists need, along with understanding how professional artists’ minds/bodies must be maintained. Dancers who train with Kelsey are given tools to aid in both their mental and physical needs while also learning proper foundation and technique. Kelsey created her own cross-training and teaching method over the past six years and has implemented it with both dancers and educators.

Before Kelsey started her journey as an educator, she worked professionally on various major motion pictures including Rock of Ages, Anchorman II: The Legend Continues, and Disney’s Million Dollar Arm. Her performance credits also include corporate work for companies such as Olive Garden, NFL Pro Bowl, USAA, Outback Bowl, Traveler’s Insurance, and many more. Kelsey had the honor of traveling the world with Royal Caribbean International and works with national talent competitions and conventions including Dance Masters of America, Thrive Dance Experience, Act 1 Talent, Universal Dance Alliance, and more to share her knowledge and educational style.

Kelsey’s desire to make every student in her classroom feel seen and heard is evident in her teaching style and her passion for personal connection can be felt as you enter the room. Her energy and excitement around sharing knowledge and empowering you to discover solutions for yourself provides an experience that is unique and impactful. The number one goal in her class is to learn about who you are as an individual and be able to bring that into the classroom experience whether you are cross training, developing technique, or exploring movement. Kelsey believes in training your brain first and is dedicated to making sure you have the tools you need to take on anything both in a classroom or your daily life. She is impacting the dance training industry and is sought after for her innovative, knowledgeable, and detailed methods, training, and coaching.
