Organizer Laci Chisholm

Organizer of Dancing Through the Decades: A Dance Fitness Class for Senior Citizens

Born in Rock Hill, South Carolina, Laci Chisholm has been dancing nearly as long as she has been walking. A gifted and outgoing child, Laci’s desire to express herself has driven her passion for dance and given her a remarkable creative outlet. Laci studied dance intensely throughout her adolescence perfecting her craft and developing her ability to share the skill of dance with others. With a strong performance background Laci has studied several genres of dance including Tap, Jazz, Haitian, and Hip-Hop.  While attaining her undergraduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Laci never lost her zeal for dancing. She was the principal dancer of Opeyo, her college’s Hip-Hop dance team. In addition to performing with her collegiate dance troupe, Laci took a serious interest in sharing her love of dance with others. She nobly founded an after school hip-hop dance class for students at a local community center due to a lack of resources in the community. Having had such success in building relationship with children through dance Laci assumed several positions after graduating where she was responsible for choreographing and teaching both competition routines and recital pieces respectively for Cheer America and the Academy for Performing Arts in North Carolina.  Moving to New York in the summer of 2006 to pursue her dreams of becoming a professional dancer, Laci studied for a year with the Hip Hop Dance Conservatory and has performed at the legendary Apollo Theater and on the Rachael Ray Show. Though she loves to perform, Laci found her calling in education and has spent most of her career in that field, though dance was never far from her heart. Laci is a certified Zumba instructor and a member of Shape-Up NYC Instructor Training Program as well as a current member of Kriye Bode, Haitian Dance performance troupe. She recently cofounded, Fit4Dance, offering private dance fitness classes in New York City. Laci truly believes that dance has the ability to elevate the spirit, focus the mind, and center the body. This belief is evident in her high-energy classes where her infectious smile and encouraging words will almost make you forget you’re even exercising.
