Dance The World Celebrity Announcement: Chelsie Hightower

Posted by Sara Firman on Oct 22, 2014 4:43:09 PM


Dance The World is thrilled to announce a very exciting addition to the already amazing opportunity for dancers: the chance to meet So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars performer, Chelsie Hightower!

Chelsie began her career at the young age of 9 years old. Within a couple of years she found her true passion for all styles of dance and hasn't stopped since! Chelsie went on to compete on season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance, where she made it all the way to the top 6!

With the completion of her SYTYCD tour, she received the call to become a part of season 8 of Dancing with the Stars. Over the last seven seasons that Chelsie has been on DWTS, she has continued to amaze the audience with her talent and love for dance. 

With all that Chelsie has done and accomplished at such a early age, we find her to be the perfect role model for our dancers! She will be joining us during our second weekend of Dance The World, June 23-26.

Performers will be given the chance to meet and take pictures with Chelsie at the group rehearsal and hear more of her inspirational story when she speaks at the Farewell Gala Dinner on June 25th. Also, for the chance to learn from Chelsie, she will be holding a Master Class Workshop on the last day of event – June 26th.

Contact us today for further information on how you can meet Chelsie Hightower!
