Instructor: Creative Movement, Modern IA-IIA, Ballet I, Jazz IA, K-1st Tap, Dance for Adults

Director and Owner of Everything Goes Dance Studio, Kelsey Renee Faulk has been part of the “EGD Familia” since the young age of 7, where she began taking tap classes in 1998 under the direction of the late Shannon Calderon-Primeau. Quickly falling in love with dance and performing, Kelsey added ballet, jazz, musical theatre, modern, and pointe to her repertoire not long after. Kelsey grew up on the stage, not limited to dancing. Her love for acting & singing blossomed alongside dance, where she has performed in dozens of plays & musicals throughout her years on the stage. Some of her favorite roles include Barbara Allen in Dark of the Moon (Jewel Box Theatre), Sandy in Grease (NWO PAC), Chrissy in Hair (UCO), and Chava in Fiddler on the Roof (PCN). Over her years of performing in theatre & dance, she has won multiple awards, including Best Female Newcomer Performer at Jewel Box Theatre, Excellence in Tap, Excellence in Ballet, Excellence in Modern Dance, and both Junior & Senior Miss Elegance at Everything Goes Dance Studio. She was also awarded the Senior Superlative of “Most Likely to be on Broadway” at her alma mater, Putnam City North High School. Kelsey discovered her love of choreographing and teaching in 2008, when her high school theatre teacher took on a brand new dance class outside the scope of her teaching experience. Kelsey took on the task of teaching the class, and led 15 of her peers, level beginner to advanced, through a successful semester of learning ballet, jazz, modern, and tap. Kelsey has since taught Creative Movement, Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Musical Theatre, and Modern dance. She was head choreographer and stage manager at NW Optimist Performing Arts Center, where she has choreographed dozens of shows, including Oklahoma!, Fame Jr., Anything Goes, The Apple Tree, Grease, Aladdin, and Cinderella, to name a few. Kelsey received her official certification to teach dance in August of 2018 through Dance Teacher University. In 2014, Kelsey choreographed, produced, and directed Project: Choreograph It, a showcase of movement meant to help break the stigma on mental illness, helping raise hundreds of dollars for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Project: Choreograph It has since extended its message through dance short films, tackling social issues through expression of movement. Kelsey has worked and trained with dozens of dance and theatre instructors & choreographers, including Lynna Tallchief, Gail Vines, Cheryl Homen, Kelly Forbes, Jennifer Connaughty, Emily South, Hui Cha Poos, Michelle Moeller, Toby Tobin, Chuck Tweed, and Rosemary Martinez-Baker. Kelsey takes sincere pride in her art and loves to spread her joy of creativity to anyone who shares her passion. She feels honored and extremely blessed to have taken over the Everything Goes Dance Studio and is dedicated to keeping Shannon Calderon-Primeau’s legacy and dreams alive through the studio’s passionate and whole-hearted presence in the community.
