"Having the opportunity to dance & perform has ALWAYS played a huge part in my life. From being the Head Captain & Choreographer of my High School dance team, to being the FIRST Black Owned Dance Studio in Danville, IL, and starting a second branch in Urbana, IL is mindblowing to say the least; but I'm not done yet. One of my ultimate goals is to live the rest of my life giving back to millions of youth through the art of dance; one dance move at a time" -Shay LaChelle
