In a world full of competition, comparison, and judgement our aim is to help young dancers love themselves and look at their journey in a healthy positive way.

Due to continued COVID-19 restrictions we have thoughtfully decided not to move forward with our 2021 camp. Please check back in 2022 as we will be offering the full event then. 

Dance camp options for dancers from beginning\intermediate to advanced.

Meet Our Founder

When I was finished with Dancing With the Stars and moved home I sat down one day and was overwhelmed with gratitude for the amazing opportunities I’ve been able to have. I felt a desire to give back to the next generation, to teach them what I have learned through my careers and what helped me succeed and what gave me motivation on those hard days when I wanted to do anything but dance. I wanted to share what helped me reach those milestones that gave me motivation and momentum to achieve and reach higher. It was then that I came up with Dance Elevated.

I wanted an atmosphere that was not only about improvement and inspiration in dance but also in life because I believe if you can reach someone’s heart their dancing will improve. I wanted to create an atmosphere where everyone felt included, whether you were an advanced dancer or just beginning to learn, Dance Elevated would be a place where all dancers can feel confident and reach their potential.

My career has been tough and I’ve felt it all. I’ve gone through many highs and lows. My dreams came true and I have felt what is like to be considered the best and “the most valued.” Through hard work and a bit of luck, I saw my dreams come true. However, I’ve also felt like what it feels like to fail in front of millions of people and had to learn how to get back up and keep going. At times even as a working professional I have felt left out of the “it” crowd with no one to call a “real friend” and pushed to the side. I’ve felt rejected and replaced. I’ve felt nothing but the purpose and also lack of. I’ve felt completely fulfilled and I’ve also felt empty. All of the experiences are the reason why I wanted to start Dance Elevated. To create an atmosphere where people didn’t feel rejected, only loved, a place where they could be at their best and explore what their potential really is and a place where they could find their purpose in their dancing or in life. I wanted Dance Elevated to be a place where everyone is a friend. You see, Dance Elevated is not just a camp but an experience. A week to make new friends, a week to push yourself out of your comfort zone, a week to feel inspired, a week to improve your dancing, a week to learn more about yourself and a week to feel loved. I can’t wait to meet all you talented dancers!



“My daughter attended Dance Elevated the summer of 2019 and I saw a change in her that is indescribable. Not only the confidence she exhibits in dance, but the confidence she exhibits in life.

“My daughter loved it. You spent time getting to know my daughter and it made her feel special,
and not just another dancer in the crowd. Thanks for being amazing with them and caring
about them on a personal level, not just a dancer level…
Was one of her best experiences!”
