Shelby is a dance instructor, DJ and lecturer based in Dallas, TX. He’s been in the scene since 2011, but he grew up dancing to hip hop, R&B, Funk, Electronic, and, due to the local Latin scene, Salsa. Growing up, he also experienced a wide array of Jazz music ranging from Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, George Benson, and David Benoit. So when he started dancing Lindy Hop in Orlando, Florida, he already had a knack for solo movement, musicality, and, fairly quickly, partnering. Shelby has also leaned on his 6 years of Sports coaching education after attaining a Bachelors of Arts and Science in Athletic Coaching Education and later a Masters of Arts in Sports Leadership and Coach. He has put this knowledge to work with 6 years of Athletics coaching experience ranging from All State high school athletes, Collegiate All Americans and an Olympic medalist. After graduation he turned his focus to general fitness as a personal trainer where he’s been training clients since 2012. Shelby’s main focuses in fitness are corrective exercise where he focuses on improving the body’s functional movement pattern via movement analysis, stretching, self myofascial rolling and strength training. As well as guiding his clients how to successfully navigate developing new habits and routines for working out.
