She was invited to various dance intensives including GoPro, a pre-professional summer workshop where she was able to take class from renowned choreographers such as Don Mirault, Helene Phillips, and Janet Langer while performing at the Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson, Missouri. She also attended a ballet intensive, Ballet JG, in Chicago directed by Jennifer Grapes. Chelsea recently graduated from the Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment at Oklahoma City University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Dance Management with a double minor in Business Entrepreneurship and History. She trained in ballet five days a week under Jo Rowan, Kay Sandel, Veronica Wilcox, Jessica Fay, and Ty Love. Chelsea also trained in jazz under Brian Marcum, Alana Martin, Tiffany van der Merwe, Tiffany Warford, Kelli Stevens, and Kari Shaw.
