Shantilee Otey is a dancer, choreographer, and dance teacher whose desire is to connect people to the transforming power of dance. Her mixture of technical and intuitive training is a reflection of her unique experiences as a dancer.
Starting as a little girl in Goode, VA, Shantilee remembers that dance was “the first activity where she felt “extraordinary.” That initial passion would be the catalyst for learning or creating routines her own for talent shows, theatre productions and cheer squads. In college she was on the E. Gwynn Dance Company, and the Spirit of David Dance Ministry.
Shantilee uses her experiences and training in ballet, lyrical, hip hop, liturgical, Afro-Carribean, and tap to inform her current classes at Miller Center: Continuing and Intermediate Tap and Creative Movement. She also conducts dance and health/fitness workshops and dances at churches and special events.
