"Kelli shows courage where others show fear, her dancing continually pushes her own boundaries as well as the constraints others try and place on us as artists, as bellydancers. Her beauty and passion are exceeded only by her persistent dedication to learning and growing. She is a powerful soul and dedicated dancer that I am honored to have as a friend. I am so lucky to be able to witness her journey as an artist."
“I first met Kelli Li when she was participating in the Tribal Massive dance intensive in Las Vegas. I was immediately impressed with her strong technique, her passion for dance, and her commitment to her dance training. Over the years I have had many opportunities to observe Kelli as a student, a performer, a choreographer, a director, and an event producer. Kelli is knowledgable, dedicated, professional, and a true artist."

“Kelli Li is a very creative and hard working dance artist. I have known her since she was pre-professional. She has done the most authentic and correct process for developing her skills. She has travelled the world to study, be an apprentice, and invest in her learning. Miss Li went from basic technique development, into the accumulation of repertoire, and is now at the stage of unique self expression. She has a complex and wide range of dance styles she has managed to coalesce, including traditional Arabic, Modern Western Dance, and World Fusion traditions. She has avoided all commercial routes, while still managing to make works of crossover appeal. I would hope for, if not expect, that Kelli becomes an influential figure in the greater dance world in Asia and beyond."
