Mrs. McCormick – Dance

KELLY McCORMICK is the owner and founder of Kelly’s Dance Academy.  She’s been performing, training & teaching for 32+ years.  She was educated by her father, John Hallahan, and by Prima Ballerina Madame Jeanette Clavijo.  She continually educates herself by attending workshops and taking classes. Her background is strong in ballet/pointe, jazz, tap, character/folk dance, lyrical and most styles of ballroom dance.  Her students have gone on to win over 200 first place honors in Regional and National competition.  Other awards have included Critic’s Choice at the NYCDA convention, Best Choreographer at LA Underground and top honors at Minnesota Talent Search.  She has seen her studio blossom from 80 students to almost 200 at her current establishment.  Kelly prides herself on not being the atypical studio that focuses on the performance, but on the universal education we give our dancers to become better performers, athletes, instructors and poised individuals.
