At just 2 years old, Shelley started Ballet and Tap dancing with her dance teaching mum Marye Simmons of MaSh Dance. She then started Ballroom, Latin American, Old Time & Freestyle at the age of 7.
As she got older Shelley would help out in classes but after taking her A-Levels she decided not to go to university but to follow in her mum's footsteps and study to become a dance teacher instead. A Year later Shelley had started her own dance classes and has been doing it ever since.
Shelley teaches dance in Corby, Kettering & Islip, as well as local primary schools & nurseries.
