Meet Luvabull Kelly

Hi, I'm 23, and originally from Chicago. I currently work as a Hearing Reporter for Social Security Disability and as a Dance Instructor. I went to Hampton University and sometimes go by Kelly Jelly and Kels.

Dance experience

I have been classically trained in various genres of dance such as ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern, and hip hop. I have attended Mayfair Academy of Fine Arts since the age of three. In high school, I was a member of the Whitney Young Dancing Guys N' Dolls as well as the Pom Pon Squad. I was an active member of the Hampton University Terpsichorean Dance Company from 2003-2007. I am starting my second season as a Chicago Luvabull.

Lifetime goal

I want to be happily married with a successful career, and to be in a financial position to generously give back to my community.

Three words that describe me are

God-fearing, intelligent, and compassionate

Quote to live by

"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome."—Booker T. Washington

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery, but today is a gift-that's why it's called the PRESENT"
