Chanel Pace

Teaching Artist

Chanel Pace started dancing at the age of 4 years old and continued dancing wherever she could throughout elementary and middle school. Her love of dance led her to learning hip hop and hip hop history at Bretnell recreation center and winning several hip hop competitions with them. In high school she earned a degree of specialization in dance performance from Fort Hayes High School. She was accepted onto Wright State University’s Emerald Jazz dance team where she competed at NDA College Nationals in the hip hop category. After college, she joined Black Cultured Performing Arts, performing in many hip hop dance and acting productions. She then started teaching ballet to the younger team members in the company and that experience inspired her to continue to share her knowledge and love for dance with the youth at summer camps: TD2 Dance Camp and Camp Lead: a step in the right direction. Today, She is a member of the TruKingdom Mega Crew and professional hip hop dance Crew in Columbus, Ohio. She works with BalletMet teaching their community outreach dance discovery programs in The King Arts Complex Soar on Saturdays hip hop program and in Reynoldsburg schools teaching jazz/hip hop at their Reynoldsburg Summer Arts Camp. She gained a love for Heels dance when she traveled to New York City and took classes at Broadway Dance Center and Peridance Center and now she teaches adults how to not only walk in heels but confidently strut and connect with their feminine side.
