Shelly

Shelly started her dancing career at the age of 8 with ballet lessons in Arroyo Grande, CA. She continued her dance training while attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, receiving a minor in dance and participating as a member of the college’s dance company. It wasn't until 2000, after visiting a friend near Nashville, that Shelly discovered her love for country music. In 2007, Shelly decided to sign up for as many Line Dance lessons and Two-Step/Partner lessons that she could fit into her schedule. She was able to combine her love for teaching dance and country music when she started getting requests to teach private lessons and was asked to substitute for her instructor. Shelly has a passion for helping others learn to dance and uses this passion to teach at THE RANCH Saloon on Saturdays at 6:30pm and 7:15pm!
