Kellie Brummerstedt’s passion for dance started at a young age, guiding her to pursue formal training at New Mexico School for the Arts. While in attendance she held a concentration in dance and studied at multiple summer intensive programs including Alonzo Kings LINES Ballet, Ballet Chicago, and the American Dance Festival. After graduating from New Mexico School for the Arts with Honors in 2014, she pursued her Bachelor of Arts from the University of New Mexico, majoring in Contemporary Dance and going on to graduate Summa Cum Laude.
In her time at University of New Mexico, she performed solo roles choreographed by Dana Tai Soon Burgess, Donna Jewell, Vladimir Conde Reche, Erika Pujick, and Amanda Hamp, among others. In 2017, she had the opportunity to perform internationally in Solden, Austria as a lead dancer in HANNIBAL, a multimedia performance show involving snowmobiles, planes, skiers, base jumpers, and paragliders, taking place on a glacier in front of thousands of viewers. While pursuing her dance degree, Kellie choreographed for multiple student dance shows and in 2018, her choreography was selected by the University of New Mexico to be adjudicated at the American College Dance Association Southwest Conference. Kellie was honored to be chosen as a lead dancer in Grammy-nominated artist Sylvan Esso’s Parade music video.
Kellie has taught and choreographed for all ages over the past six years and loves teaching the next generation of movers. She is so excited to be joining Todd Rosenlieb Dance for her first season.
