Kelei signed with MSA agency, another avenue through which she could explore dance and all it offers. More recently, acting has become another focal point for Kelei. She has worked on camera in short films, television shows, and movies on Netflix and Hulu. Dance and acting work hand in hand at satisfying Kelei’s craving for performance and artistic expression.

Wanting to get involved to help Lexi Haas, dancer Kelei self-choreographed a solo to “Lexi’s Song”, which was specifically written for Lexi to show Lexi how much of an inspiration she is. Along with the solo, Rising Talent Magazine asked Kelei a few questions about dance.

She now trains in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Hip-Hop. 

Kelei is all personality! With her irresistible smile and positive attitude, she will definitely go far in her Journey.

We love seeing what she brings out in everything she does from Dancing, to Modeling and her newest interest Acting.

Kelei's Dance Advice :​

" Just Go For It. It will take lots of hard work and dedication but it's super fun. If you don't get something on the first try TRY AGAIN. No matter what you are doing just have fun and smile. "
