Instructor |

Kelly was born and raised in the Bay Area where she trained mostly at San Ramon Valley Dance Academy under the tutelage of Megan Rorhbacher. A talented dance artist from a young age, Kelly received both the William Fife Scholarship as well as the Founders Award. She is privileged to have tapped with numerous industry professionals, including her tap inspiration, Jason Janas. Kelly has performed with renowned dancers such as Les Twins, Kida the Great, and Academy of Villains at the Palace of Fine Arts. Her instruction and innovative choreography have received accolades at many dance competitions, including Outstanding Showmanship and Critic’s Choice at New York City Dance Alliance (NYCDA).

Since her first dance class at the age of three, Kelly’s love for tap dancing has grown with each new day. In addition to tap, she has trained in various styles such as breakdancing, aerial dance, hip hop, jazz, and ballet. She is thrilled to join our family and share her love for dance with the students at Ace!


To dance is to be out of yourself.
Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.
