Angela Bartley, actress, musician and dancer

Angela Bartley has spent her adult life extensively traveling six continents to gain firsthand experience with world cultures. Formally trained in Latin dance, international music, and social dance, she is a dancer, actress, singer, and trumpeter. She also acts in national TV commercials and is a Kentucky Chautauqua living history presenter for the Kentucky Humanities Council, performing 45-minute monologues as Rosie the Riveter and a young Mary Todd Lincoln.

After earning a full music scholarship to the University of Louisville, Angela gained local notoriety as a bugler for the Kentucky Derby Museum. She now teaches dance and trumpet and is a top-selling independent artist in the state of Kentucky. Her CDs include Sounds Kentucky and Goodnite Kisses: Lullabies from around the World.

Angela teaches students of all ages and levels of physical, mental, and emotional ability to discover their own inner joy and love of life through the beauty and richness of music and dance.

She also helps educators meet Kentucky Core Content academic expectations by integrating multicultural dance into social studies, history, art, math, and language arts.
