Continuing Lecturer

Kelli holds a B.A. in Dance from UC Riverside and an M.F.A. in Dance from UC Irvine. She has been on faculty at Riverside Community College, Mt. San Jacinto College, Idyllwild Arts Academy and San Bernardino Valley College. She has performed with California Ballet Company before investigating other movement disciplines. While living in Boston Kelli was a member of the Boston Dance Collective and Danceworks, performing, touring and teaching on both coastlines extensively. She also studied with Butoh master Ushio Amagatsu, performing with Japanese dance/theater company Sankai Juku in a project at Jacob’s Pillow. She has since returned to The Pillow twice with Susan Rose and Dancers. Kelli takes her love of movement out of the studio and into the natural world through hiking, surfing and camping.
