Cricket Keller started dancing in her mom’s studio in New Mexico under the instruction of her mother at the age of three. After Cricket graduated high school she moved straight to Los Angeles, CA where she auditioned for and received a scholarship to study commercial dance at the EDGE Performing Arts Center. Cricket enjoyed a dance career for years following her time as an EDGE scholar; she eventually attended college at UCLA. In 2010 Cricket and her husband moved to Colorado after their daughter was born to be closer to family. Cricket has been teaching at The Colorado School of Dance here in Parker, CO ever since and enjoys teaching all the kids there. Some of Cricket’s dancing credits include re-occurring performances as a featured American Bandstand dancer on NBC’s “American Dreams”, playing a cheerleader in the Hillary Duff movie “A Cinderella Story”, and performing live at the American Music Awards for pop artist Pink and choreographer Marty Kudelka. She was an original cast member as an aerialist / underwater soloist for the stunt show “Mystic Rhythms” at Tokyo Disney Sea, a beloved show which only recently closed after running for fourteen years. Cricket is an experienced adjudicator for dance festivals and competitions, has taught master classes throughout the U.S. and Canada, and has over fifteen years experience teaching dance and working as a choreographer. Cricket received her Bachelor of Arts in World Arts and Cultures from UCLA in 2008.
