tap kelly“I have been dancing since I was six years old, and my love for dancing is endless. I still continue attending classes, whilst actively teaching and choreographing, to keep my passion for dancing fresh, alive and skillful. I major in ballet, modern and tap for which I have completed all the professional grades through my own teachers Alexandre La Matire; Gabriella Najjar; Trish McKenna; Nadine Bettencourt and Jenny. I also found my love in many other styles namely Flamenco, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Funk and Irish dancing.

Whilst teaching I still enjoy performing as a dancer. In the last seven years, I have danced for several advertisements such as Sony BMG, Kulula and Vodacom, as well as participated in quite a few corporate events. I was an assistant dancer for Cesar Alverado’s Adrelatin debut on Morning Live. Furthermore, I have also performed in two pieces for the Ntsoana Contemporary Dance Theatre.

My love for the stage is evident as I have performed in West Side Story (dancer), Guys and Dolls (dancer), Footloose (supporting actress), and The Crucible (lead actress).
