About Chelsea Hill:
Chelsea fell into a life of creative movement at age 4, when she pierced her ears and joined ballet, devoting her tiny self to being magnetic, outspoken, and wiggling her body. Since then, her life has changed drastically, but these aspects of Chelsea remain the same. Chelsea grew up in a small dance studio in Northern Michigan, and began teaching when she was only 16. She trained in ballet, pointe, contemporary, modern, jazz, Celtic, tap, and clogging. At University, she found a love for Contemporary Movement and studies of Dance History. Chelsea holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Contemporary Dance from Michigan State University, and her Master’s of Arts in Dance Movement Therapy & Counseling from Columbia. She began studying yoga in 2013 to heal herself from a severe illness, and understand both the science and philosophy behind the human trinity — body, mind, and soul. Chelsea has lived in the Bay Area for 6 years, involved in dance, choir, and performance projects with the Sarah Bush Dance Project, Bandaloop, Roxanne Gray Dance Company, Cat Call Choir, Roco Dance and Fitness, Shawl Anderson Dance Center, The Pad Studios, Metta Yoga, Athleta, Lululemon, Movemeant Foundation, SheJumps, and working independently. She has studied and presented choreographic work in Michigan, Chicago, New York, and California, including productions with Loft This, One Billion Rising, Chicago School of Ballet, and the TVC Global: Hair Art Fashion Show. Chelsea has danced with toddlers, elders, alter-abled bodies, prisoners, and ex-convicts in rehabilitative centers. As a yogi, poet, dancer, and wellness coach, she urges her students not just to sweat and move, but move with passion and purpose. “Dance and other movement practices help establish healthy boundaries, train you to resource internally, and create a community. Each day I dance, I fall in love with my body and the endless possibilities. But no matter how strong, energetic, exhausted, or old you are…remember, you are not just a body, you are SOMEbody”
