Kelleia Sheerin is a wild west born American director/choreographer/performer. Equal parts performer and creator, Kelleia is a rare broad who has carved out a career telling bewitching, quick-silvered stories of people on the verge of either a break down or a break through. From directing award-winning plays to dancing as an absurd Scottish Tart in Eric Idle’s live radio-play What About Dick? From portraying the ultra-savvy Burlesque Star of her time, Tempest Storm, in the film Gangster Squad to camping-it-up as a 16-year-old camp counselor in Wet Hot American Summer - First Day of Camp. From originating a role on Broadway in Urban Cowboy to choreographing on a myriad of shows, plays & musicals, Kelleia has built her reputation on an inherent understanding of the work, a respect for the unpredictable, the 10,000+ hours of a professional and the ability to solve anything.
