Kim McCachrens, Commerce School of Dance, Commerce GA

Kim McCachren Sellers

Kim McCachren Sellers grew up in Mt. Airy North Carolina studying ballet, tap and jazz under Luci Stockton Phillips. During her senior year in high school, she took early entry into East Carolina University in order to study under Dutch ballet master, Petrus Van Muyden. While there she was inducted into the Phi Eta Sigma Freshman National Honor Society.

The following year she moved to Atlanta Georgia where she studied at the Atlanta School of Ballet and became a member of the Atlanta Ballet’s Youth Ensemble. She performed in the Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker at the Fox Theatre and at the opening of Atlanta’s High Museum. The next year she apprenticed with The Ruth Mitchell Dance Theatre in Atlanta and joined the professional tour ensemble the following year. Highlights from her ten year career with The Ruth Mitchell Dance Theatre include making the company’s New York City debut at the Riverside Church Theatre and performing in three Piccolo Spoleto International Arts festivals in Charleston S.C.

Kim has performed to critical acclaim various featured roles and solos. As a guest performer she worked with a variety of local Atlanta choreographers and producers. She portrayed Mexican visual artist, Frida Kahlo, in a movement theatre piece about her life that was filmed for PBS Atlanta affiliate Channel 30. This was part of a series that was named runner up for the Robert Bennett Award for local programming in 1991 and was shown at the American Film Institute’s American Film Festival in Los Angeles of that year.

Kim began her teaching career at the Ruth Mitchell Dance Studios in 1987 teaching all ages and levels including the pre professional apprentices. While Kim was a faculty member, Ruth Mitchell received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. She has also taught in Conyers, Tucker, Griffin, and Toccoa, Georgia.

Kim opened Commerce School of Dance with her husband, Trent Sellers, in September of 1995. Commerce School of Dance was voted “Best Dance Lessons” in the Commerce News, Jackson Herald and Braselton News Readers’ Choice Poll for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Artistic Development Through Dance, Commerce School of Dance, Commerce GA

The Benefits of Dance

Research shows that dance provides physical, developmental, artistic, and academic benefits for our youth. They build muscle, coordination, flexibility, and a positive attitude toward body image with dance. Discipline and focus increase as students develop self-esteem and poise. Our classes nurture self-expression and creativity. And you may be surprised to learn that students who participate in dance have better GPAs throughout their school years, achieve higher SAT scores, and are more likely to earn better grades in college.
