Originally from Indiana, Chelsea Endris began her love of dance at her mother's studio, Southern Indiana School for the Arts. At SISA she grew in ballet, tap, jazz, theatre and voice yet knew at a young age that ballet was her passion. She continued to pursue her passion at summer programs with Indiana University Jacob School of Music, Interlochen Arts Academy and American Ballet Theatre.

During her time at Point Park University, Chelsea was able to dance a soloist role in Septime Weber's 'Fluctuating Hemlines', Kitri in Susan Stowe's 'Don Quixote' and the lead female soloist in Antony Tudor's 'Continuo'.
