With a mission to provoke a positively contagious environment where being healthy, happy and sweaty is cool, Kellee has created numerous award winning kids' fitness videos and cutting edge curricula. Most recently she wrote, directed and produced an edutainment "hip-hopera" for NASA called Space School Musical that is revolutionizing science education. Partnering with the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative, Kellee and the KidTribe Crew enjoyed the honor of performing at the White House for the Easter Egg Roll in 2010 and 2011, as well as Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day of Play in DC for over 60,000 families.
