2: Tiny Dancer | Kellie started dancing at the age of 3. She loved to go up on stage for awards with Kasie and she begged to dance herself. We Weren't sure she would really do the dance the first time...but she came out with the biggest smile on her face to perform "Baby Love". From that day on she loved being on stage.
