Elly Schaaf resides in Kenosha, WI, where she teaches ballet and Barre classes. She started dancing at age 6 and received pre-professional training in multiple disciplines of the arts at DaySpring Arts and Education in St. Louis, MO. She taught ballet and jazz into her twenties before taking a break and working in administration and hospitality. Since moving to Kenosha 3 years ago, Elly has started a ballet program at an existing school of dance and opened a business teaching Barre classes in the local downtown area. She is excited to be able to bring the Dance for PD program to her city and eager to connect with the greater Parkinson’s community.
