Kelly started with us at Dakini back in January of 2017, after a friend recommended our studio to her as a great workout class. She initially wanted a fun way to lose weight for her wedding, but after one month of classes with us, Kelly knew she was hooked for life! She has earned her brown belt in Tae Kwon Doe, and although she has no prior dance experience, Kelly took to our movement and free dance right away. In May of 2018, Kelly wanted to begin teaching at Dakini to share her feeling of lightness and empowerment with all of our students. She hopes to encourage beginner students to find their own movement style by sharing and exploring different combinations and styles of dance. Kelly is currently a substitute teacher for our Dakini Movement team.
