Christel Schlabach

Studio Manager

Christel started dancing when she tried out for dance team at Aloha High School. She had no previous experience so dance was completely new to her, but she fell in love with it immediately. After High School, she was on the cheer/dance team at Portland State University and after two years on the team, she ended up coaching the team for a year. After college Christel was a Portland Lumberjax Dancer. (The Lumberjax was the Professional Lacrosse team for Portland) While being a Jax Dancer, Christel auditioned for the Portland Trail Blazers Jam Squad (co-ed Hip Hop team) and ended up making the team! She then danced for the Jam Squad for 2 years and after that she danced for the BlazerDancers for 3 years. While Christel danced for the Portland Trail Blazers, she was also a company member in The Detail, Nonsense Dance Co, and Lyrik. Now Christel enjoys her love of dance by teaching, watching her daughter learn to dance, and going on much needed date nights with her husband to musicals and dance performances.
