Michelle "Chelby" Barnhill has loved dance fitness from a very young age. During her time at the University of Cincinnati, Chelby was very involved with the adult dance fitness group "Rhythm and Motion" at the Cincinnati Ballet.
After graduating from the College-Conservatory of Music at UC, Chelby worked as a TV news reporter for over a decade in Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus markets. After having kids, Chelby was seeking dance fitness again and fell in love with Dayton-based, SWERK, Sweat, Work Twerk, a hip-hop dance fitness class. She became a Swerk certified Dance Instructor in 2020 and absolutely loves teaching and can't wait to share SWERK with the Beavercreek community!
