Chelsey is a graduate from the University of Windsor’s Drama department. Chelsey performs regularly within the Middle Eastern communities of Calgary and has traveled through Canada and Australia teaching physical theatre and acting techniques for Middle Eastern dance.
Chelsey's directing style derives from physical theatre and the combination of methods used in Middle Eastern performance techniques fused with Grotowski's Poor Theatre philosophy.
