Kelsey Lewis

My name is Kelsey Lewis and I started my dance journey at Borderline Bar and Grill! I was quickly fascinated with everything that line dancing had to offer and I needed to learn every dance. I never wanted to spend a second off of the dance floor! This eventually led to me being asked to two step, which led to me meeting my dance partner. Because of him, we now compete in 7 different styles of dance, one day hoping to win a world title!

 

You can find me DJing and dancing at various country bars and festivals throughout Southern California! You can also find me dancing at many UCWDC events across the country. When I’m not competing you can find me dancing at pretty much any country bar on any given night in SoCal: The Ranch, Borderline, Oil Can Harry’s, Stampede, Moonshine Beach/Flats, Incahoots, and Cowboy Country!

My love for line dancing and the country community grows more and more with every 8 count! How it all began…..following Country Sole on facebook and youtube! You can see his passion for dancing in all his videos and it looked like soooo much fun and I definitely wanted to learn. I reached out to my now dear amazing super talented friend Bj (country Sole) and asked if he knew of any line dance lessons closer to home since his lessons where a short drive (San Diego).

 I was opened with open arms by everyone, the “regulars” there are my now amazing friends that I not only dance with but I’ve made endless memories that I will cherish forever. I went from being intimidated to try something new that made me feel like I had to left feet, to having a sense of belonging and smiling all through the dance floor and having a right and left foot.

 Line dancing not only keeps my girls and I active but it lets us be ourselves some place where we will never be judged, where we will be encouraged to follow our dreams and always be welcomed with open arms.
