Originally from Spokane, WA, Shelby Steele started dancing at the age of 3, and continued her training and competed in various styles such as Hip Hop, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Pointe, and Musical Theater. After graduating high school, she moved to NYC where she continued her dance studies at the Joffrey Ballet School, Broadway Dance Center’s Professional Semester and Luam Keflezgy's Rock the Industry. After 6 years of living in NYC she made the move back to the west coast and is now living in Los Angeles.

Assisting for 5 years at various conventions, workshops and studios throughout the US, Singapore, and Argentina has given Shelby the opportunity to grow as a student, as well as the opportunity to connect with other outstanding professionals in the dance world. She believes everything happens for a reason and is grateful to be represented by Bloc LA/NYC and for the beautiful life she gets to live with her supportive family by her side.
