Samantha grew up in the St. Louis suburbs and started dancing at the age of three. She has trained in tap, ballet, jazz and lyrical. She started assisting in middle school at her childhood studio and continued through her senior year of high school. Through those years she learned that she values teaching over dancing, as she loves connecting with each child an watching them grow throughout the year both as a dancer and a person. Samantha is now a student at Missouri S&T studying Biology with plans to graduate in May 2018 and go on to grad school. She is the Historian of the S&T Ballet and Dance Club where you can see her perform in Aladdin this February!

She began student teaching at her home studio during junior high and continued to become a choreographer for their competition team while in college.

As Captain, she led her team to many victories at competitions and taught other team members what it means to support each other in all circumstances. When Kelsey moved to Kansas City to pursue a Bachelor's of Science in Geology, she taught for a studio in Blue Springs, MO where she helped build their competition team and took ballet and pointe through University of Missouri-Kansas City's esteemed Conservatory. After graduation, Kelsey moved to Salem, MO with her husband and taught for a studio in Rolla, MO for a year. In 2014, Kelsey's life took her in a new direction when she opened her own dance studio. No matter where Kelsey has taught, she has been recognized for her outstanding dedication and responsibility to her students on many occasions and has been presented Choreography Awards for multiple routines. She is known for her commitment, perseverance, passion and sincerity. Kelsey's love and passion for dance continues to grow and she is constantly striving to improve herself for her dancers!
