Chandelle Huerta

Chandelle has taken dance classes off and on growing up and became really committed when she moved to Weiser in 2005, right before starting High School. She joined the local dance studio and took as many classes as she possibly could. 

She went to Snow College in Utah for 1 year, expecting to get an associate’s degree in dance but she found athletic training and exercise physiology more interesting and switched majors. She transferred to BSU for her remaining years of college and took many dance classes there and was on the Boise State Colorguard team for a year. Throughout the years, she has taken many classes in all different styles, such as: Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Ballroom, Modern, and even Tap! 

Chandelle has 2 young boys that keep her and her husband, Emilio, on their toes. She is also a pilot and health coach and works as an airplane mechanic apprentice at a local airport.

Chandelle is very excited for the next season and is excited to be back with her Dance Extreme family!
