Meet the Creator and Author
Kelly Wills began her dancing training at age seven in Tallahassee, Florida. At sixteen, she won first place in the senior division competition in the Performing Arts Showcase at the Dance Educators of America Southeastern Regional in Atlanta, Georgia. This sparked a desire to work toward a Broadway career. Her love for a young man, Lance, won out over her desire for Broadway. They were married and she followed him through his U.S. Air Force career for 24 years and four beautiful children. Following his retirement she opened her very own dance studio in Abbeville, Alabama. She continues to teach dance in Eufaula, Alabama at Kelly Wills School of Dance. Ms. Kelly, as her students call her, wrote "The Golden Pearl Kingdom" as a Ballet which her dance students performed. She has turned her story into a book that everyone can read and image themselves dancing under the waves on the golden sands of the Pearl Kingdom.
