Calysta Westlake
Calysta Westlake has been dancing since the age of 3.  She attended high school at the Orange County School of the Arts, specializing in Commercial Dance.  She is currently at Chapman University studying both Dance and Psychology and will be graduating in the spring of 2021. 

In past summers, she toured with Velocity Dance Convention and currently spends her summers travelling and assisting Lonni Olson to set choreography and teach classes. As a teacher, Calysta has taught classes and workshops at Millennium Dance Complex Orange County and other studios in the OC area. In addition to teaching, she also offers private lessons and choreography for various studios. Outside of the performance community, Calysta is training to become a certified Pilates teacher and enjoys helping people reach new dance and fitness goals.

Calysta hopes to continue developing her unique style and inspire others to push the boundaries of the contemporary dance genre.
