Angel Theory



ANGEL THEORY is a queer, hard of hearing actor, dancer, and choreographer best known for her role of Kelly on AMC’s, THE WALKING DEAD. Originally from Far Rockaway Queens (NY), Angel began dancing at the age of 2 where dance quickly became part of her DNA. Although Angel loved to dance, she hid her talent to avoid being bullied while attending her various elementary schools. Growing up, Angel moved from home to home with her single mother - always being the new kid in the schools she attended. The only way she could rise above her surroundings was by dancing her heart out and creating new works through her passion for choreography. Angel acquired her early dance training at the Broadway Dance Center, EXPG studios, and Peridance Studios taking tap, hip hop, jazz, ballet, and contemporary classes. She had never danced for anyone other than her family, however with the support of her mom, Angel worked up the courage to perform at a school talent show. Her courage paid off and after winning first place, her passion for dance was validated and she began performing amateur nights at the legendary Apollo Theatre. She became an Apollo Child Star after winning first place in 6 consecutive competitions. She strengthened her dance skills, discipline, and creative expression through after-school programs like basketball, karate, capoeira, and musical production. Angel got her first big break in the dance community with the help of director Lenny Bass, who gave her the opportunity to work with Phillip George in the “Wish You Were Mine” and Charles Perry “Stranger To Love” music videos. Seeing her face on the big screen was an eye-opener for Angel, and she knew that dancing and entertaining was her life's purpose.

Previous on-screen credits include Maggie Gyllenhaal’s SHERRYBABY and can be seen next on the final season of TRANSPARENT. She resides in the Tri-state area.
