Established in 1978 by Kelly, Kelly School of Dance had become one of the ELITE places to study dance.  In 2006 Kelly decided to hang up her shoes and retire. She sold the business to her partner, Gel Tracewell, after working closely together for 23 years. Many of our former students have continued their dance education in college and even various dance companies.  We study with various instructors from Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Kentucky.
Gel Tracewell is from London, England with an extensive background in dance and theatre.  She is now the owner of Gel's Dance Centre. Home of Gel's Dancers in Vienna, Marietta, and Harrisville.  Along with Kelly they produced the Award winning Kelly's Kompany Dance teams.
Michele Hamilton has studied with Gel at the Marietta studio since 1991 and then joined the faculty in 1998.  She is the owner of Michele's One Step Up Studio in St Marys and is the director of the nationally successful "X-treme Dance Team” and Elite Dance teams as well.
