Shelley Crowley took her first ballet class at the age of seven, not knowing it would be
the beginning of a lifetime filled with dance. By the time she was fourteen she had
already started her professional career as a soloist with Santa Clara Ballet Company.
Classically trained, in both Vaganova and Royal Academy styles of ballet, she was an
apprentice for San Francisco Ballet, and later became a member of Pacific Dance
Theatre and Peninsula Ballet all before graduating from high school. After graduation,
she attended UCLA as a Dance major, and continued her dance career, in Southern
California as an industry dancer. Years later she decided to return to the Bay Area to
continue her education at San Jose State University in the Theater Arts Department.
Shelley started teaching dance while attending SJSU, and later moved to the
Sacramento area where she founded Roseville School of Dance in the 90s. She was
the director and choreographer for Valley Dance Repertoire, a pro/am performance and
competition company. Shelley has had the honor of judging for many national dance
competitions, including KAR and Starbound, and has taught master classes throughout
Northern California. She has taught classical ballet, commercial & musical theater jazz,
lyrical, and contemporary for many studios in the Sacramento Valley, including Lines
School of Performing Arts, KAST Academy, Dance Elite All-Stars, Aria’s to the Pointe,
and most recently, Studio 65 Dance Company, where she was the Musical Theater
What seems like a lifetime later, Shelley is a very proud mama of three amazing adults,
and feels so blessed to now be a part of the CYT Family.
Amber Nunn is overjoyed to be teaching at CYT Sacramento this session. Amber is a CYT alumni who had the opportunity to be in over 20 productions, including CYT Sacramento’s first show Annie. As a student, she had the privilege of learning from the exceptional CYT Teaching Artists and has fell in love with teaching. From a young age, Amber has had a passion for dance, and has been trained in ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop. In her time as a CYT student, she had the pleasure of being Dance Captain and Assistant Choreographer of multiple productions, her favorite being Godspell.
Amber’s love for students lead her to work for Lifeway Christian Ministry Fuge Camps in past summers, leading students in worship. She can’t wait to work with CYT students as she shares her love for dance this session.
