Jackie Shelly

Color Guard Instructor

Jacqueline began performing at the age of three as a member of the Dancer’s Gallery team in Pembroke Pines.  Studying the performing arts for many years, she focused on ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, Afro-Caribbean, bellydance, musical theater, contemporary, and acrobatics.  In 2010, Jacqueline auditioned for and joined the Madison Brody Dance Company where she would travel around the country performing in many venues.  With highlight performances at Disney World, New York City’s Macy’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and at Alvin Ailey Studios, she would soon use her dance skills to join the Flanagan High School Junior Varsity Winter Guard in the eighth grade.  As her love for the Sport of the Arts flourished, Jacqueline joined the Flanagan Falcon Sound Marching Band in 2015 and would continue with the team throughout her high school career.  As a sophomore, she joined the Flanagan World Guard and competed three times in the WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio.  During this span, the Flanagan World Guard won two SFWGA Championships, three WGI Regional competitions, and a fourth place at the WGI World Championships. In 2018, she was named captain of the Flanagan color guard. In the fall of 2019, Jacqueline began attending Florida Atlantic University and was accepted as a member of the FAU Marching Owls.  As a founding member of the FAU Winter Guard, she continued to perform in SFWGA competitions.  Now in her third year with the Marching Owls, Jacqueline was named a team captain for the color guard.  In the fall of 2020, she joined independent world guard, Relentless, and performed on the main flagline.  Majoring in Theater Design and Technology, Jacqueline hopes to build a career in the performing and theatrical arts and is looking forward to working with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Eagle Regiment.
