Chelsea has been dancing since college, when she decided it would be a bright idea to begin lessons in seven kinds of ballroom dancing at the same time. Since 2007, she has immersed herself in the world of swing, where she dances and teaches numerous swing dances including Balboa, Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, Charleston, and St. Louis Shag. She is known for her infectious smile and creativity on the dance floor, and in the classroom she brings a knack for breaking down the basics and providing opportunities for both leaders and followers to learn to their maximum potential. She has won awards at events including All Balboa Weekend, the International Lindy Hop Championships, the Eastern Balboa Championships, and Hot Rhythm Holiday and is proud to have earned the distinction of Distinguished Fellow at The Balboa Experiment for her work there as a guest mentor. She teaches at her local venue, The Jam Cellar, in Washington, D.C., and has also taught at events nationally and internationally, including the Eastern Balboa Championships, Balboa Castle Camp, The Process, and Hot Rhythm Holiday. Chelsea also edits the swing dance blog Swungover.
