Shelby Chambers began her dance training at the age of 3 at Roxana's Dance Expressions in Clarkston, Michigan where she was able to study a wide variety of dance techniques for 14 years.  In combination with this, she was able to get other technical and performance opportunities as a member of the Lake Orion Varsity Dance Team and Detroit Shockwave Crew.  Shelby then continued at Grand Valley where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in both Allied Health and Dance.  She had many opportunities at Grand Valley including performing in many faculty, student and guest artist works, being part of Move 2 The Beat Dance Crew, captain of the Laker Dance Team, and a teacher choreographer and competition judge around the Grand Rapids area. Following graduation Shelby performed professionally as a 2 year member of the Detroit Lions Cheerleaders and 1 year performing with Next Level Dance Company. Along with her background in dance, Shelby is also a graduate from The University of Michigan with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy which brings a flair of health, science, and fitness to her dance education. Shelby continues to perform and instruct in the greater Grand Rapids area and looks forward to sharing her talents with the GVSU Dance Department.
