Kelly Black originally is from central Ohio where she started dancing at the age of five. She received a BA in Art Education with a Dance minor from Otterbein University. At school is where she first met Tony nominated choreographer, Randy Skinner. He set 42nd Street at Otterbein, and it was that show that really made Kelly realize her dream of performing professionally. Kelly’s first professional show was the 42nd Street tour in Asia. After that she moved to New York and has continued to work with Randy and many other notable choreographers performing around the country.
Her favorite theater credits include: Irving Berlin’s White Christmas (National Tour, Paper Mill Playhouse), 42nd Street (Gateway Playhouse, Westchester Broadway Theatre), Anything Goes (Reno Understudy, Westchester Broadway Theatre), Thoroughly Modern Millie (Paper Mill Playhouse), Backwards In High Heels (Ginger Rogers, Broward Stage Door Theatre), The Addams Family (Ogunquit Playhouse, Gateway Playhouse), Annie (Ms. Hannigan understudy, Westchester Broadway Theatre)
When Kelly is not on stage, she is busy being a mommy and a preschool teacher. She loves to share the joy of dancing to younger generations.
