Miss Shelby

Artistic Director & Instructor

Miss Shelby is an Artistic Director of Studio 89 Inc.

Growing up dancing in Alberta for the past 14 years, Shelby Gartner has been trained in styles such as ballet (I.S.T.D, R.A.D, and Cecchetti), tap (AI Gilbert, I.S.T.D, and A.D.A.P.T), jazz, lyrical, modern, musical theatre, and hip hop. Her love of dance has taken her to various festivals and workshops around Alberta and gave her the opportunity to travel to New York in 2011, as well as given her many opportunities to perform around the Edmonton area.

Shelby started assistant teaching when she was 12 years old, and began running her own classes shortly after that. She has taught ages ranging from three years to seventeen years. Her students continually inspire her to learn and grow as a teacher and a performer.
