Kelli was born and raised in Marysville, Washington where she began dancing at the age of 5 and later continued her training in Seattle at Westlake Dance Center. After high school, Kelli moved out to Los Angeles to pursue her love of dance and take part in Edge Performing Arts Center’s Professional Scholarship training program. She is trained in ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap, contemporary and more. While on scholarship, Kelli got the chance to perform in a Tina Landon tribute put together by Jason Myhre. She got the privilege of performing Tina’s original choreography from her greatest hits alongside her original dancers. Since being represented by Bloc, Kelli has been seen in multiple commercials including Adidas and Tamagotchi and has had the opportunity of dancing behind Britney Spears in Hasbro’s international Twister Dance commercial. She has also appeared as a back-dancer/singer on Nickelodeon’s Victorious and is a “Young American Dancer” in the upcoming film, Behind the Candelabra choreographed by Marguerite Derricks. Nothing can bring more joy than loving what you do, Kelli is so grateful to have dance in her life.
