 A few pics of Miss Kel in her younger dancing days! 

Kelly began her dance training in Swindon at the age of 3 when she attended weekly classes at Tanwood School of Dance and Drama  - Here she trained for 17 years

From the age of 4-19 years, Kelly participated in many dance competitions up and down the country, she was very successful in winning many medals and trophies, including awards for her own choreography 

Kelly also qualified on more than one occasion to dance at 'The All England Dance Finals' - Saddlers Wells where she was a medal winner

Alongside performing competitively, Kelly also performed in many professional shows and pantomimes, one of which she was chosen to take on the role of Lead Girl, starring alongside Paul Bradley (Holby City) Juliette Kaplan (Last of the Summer Wine) and Daniel Boys (Any Dream will do, Nativity Rocks)

Kelly has also had the opportunity to take part in some television work including; 'Teachers' (Channel 4); 'The 20th Century Roadshow' with Alan Titchmarsh (BBC Bristol) and 'Dancing School' a fly on the wall Documentary for ITV

After leaving school Kelly went on to Study a 2 year A-level Dance course as part of Swindon College, here she was inspired and privileged to train with some of the top dance teachers in the country, whilst in her final year Kelly began auditioning for prestigious dance Colleges in London and was delighted with her success in receiving various offers, including Laines Theatre which had always been a dream

Although Kelly absolutely loved being on the stage performing and competing, whilst studying in London she decided that she didn't want to spend long working contracts away from home and so she decided to focus more on the teaching side of dance - Here she could give children the chance to experience the many amazing and memorable opportunities she has during her dance training

Kelly founded Miss Kel's Dance Academy by teaching dance clubs to local Primary School and then progressed on to small studio classes but gave the academy a fresh re-launch in 2014 when purchasing private dance studios to home MKDA

With fantastic support the school continues to grow year on year with more and more students entering from the wings and Kelly is very excited for the future of the academy and hopes to inspire and teach some dancing stars of the future
