Kellyn Uhl, Instructor of Musical Theatre and Dance, is a versatile artist with roots in dance, acting, choreography, and photography, alongside a whole mound of other curiosities and gifts.  She has performed at some of the country’s most prestigious regional theaters and collaborated with some of Broadway’s most supreme directors and choreographers, including Barrington Stage Company (dir: John Rando, chor: Josh Bergasse), and the Tony Award winning Goodspeed Opera House (dir: Greg Ganakas, chor: Vince Pesce) where she was invited back to serve as assistant director and assistant choreographer during multiple productions (dir: Ray Roderick, chor: Kelli Barclay).  In New York, Kellyn has performed at the Hangar Theatre, the Players Theatre, Theatre Under St. Marks, and Dixon Place.  Last winter, Kellyn reveled in a three month dance teaching residency at the Rising Star School for leprosy affected youth in Tamil Nadu, India; here she also taught movement therapy classes to neighboring leprosy patients while coaching and choreographing for the first ever dance company comprised of young artists from leprosy colonies: Promethean Spark International’s Lifedance Troupe.  Currently, she is the resident event photographer at YoutubeSpace New York and has her own successful photography business specializing in actor headshots.  Kellyn is a MSU BFA Acting alum and has been joyfully blooming in NYC since graduation in 2010.
