Chelsea Holloway

Owner & Artistic Director

Chelsea is a certified TCRG and has taught Irish dance for over 12 years to dancers of all ages and levels. She has coached and mentored dancers from a beginner to the World Championship's stage.  She emphasizes first and foremost having FUN.  She believes there's a way to teach with providing the perfect balance of fun while learning discipline, respect for yourself and others, responsibility, and developing yourself not only as a dancer but as a person. Her teaching style offers support emotionally and mentally, breaking down material or corrections in as many different ways as the dancer needs to truly understand, and inspiration through encouragement. She believes strongly in teaching dancers to not only be the best dancers they can be technically, but also teaches them how to take care of their bodies to allow them to perform to the best of their abilities; as well as how to deal with and overcome challenges that may arise.
