"There are no short cuts to the top."



Kelsey's love for dance and athletics began at a young age, where she began dancing on a competition line at a studio by the age of four. Growing up in a competitive family, Kelsey learned that being an athlete was just as important as being a dancer, and that the two went hand-in-hand with each other. Hard work and determination with her training led her to dance for the prestigious University of Minnesota Dance Team. During her four years on the U of M Dance Team, she took home four national championships; Senior Year Captain; won 'Most Valuable Dancer'; and represented USA in the World Dance Team Competition where USA won two world titles. Kelsey's degree is in Kinesiology and she also is a NASM certified personal trainer and certified yoga instructor. Kelsey is excited to merge the dance world with TIGER Athletics and believes it will take Minnesota Dance to the next level!
