Country dancing instructor and choreographer, Shelly, in her cowgirl hat standing in front of The Saloon stage.
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, she minored in dance and was a member of the college's dance company. It wasn't until 2000, after visiting a friend near Nashville, Tennessee, that Shelly discovered her love for country music. In 2007, she reconnected with another friend who was taking Line Dance lessons. In that moment, Shelly decided to sign up for as many Line Dance lessons and two-step/couples lessons that she could fit into her schedule. Shelly 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. In 2008, Shelly co-choreographed a Line Dance called "Workin' for a Livin" with her dance instructor and friend, Kimberly Gautney, who also teaches at THE RANCH! Shelly has a passion for helping others learn to dance! You can see Shelly teaching on Saturdays at 6:30pm and 7:15pm!
