Originally from Des Moines, IA, Heather began her dance training at Iowa's Westside Dance Academy. There, her love for dance began and grew. She studied ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop and pointe. She competed in many competitions in the Midwest while dancing at Westside and was invited to perform in Disneyland for their 50th anniversary celebration. Heather continued dancing and competing throughout her college career at Northwestern College, IA. Studying theatre along with dance, she was privileged to choreograph for theatrical performances as well as dance showcases. After graduation, she continued to push herself into using both her passion for dance and love for theatre. Upon moving to Chicago, Heather has taught at multiple after school programs through Chicago Music House, acted for Chicago Princess Premiere, taught at studios on Chicago's south and north side, choreographed for dance showcases, and participated in dance films throughout the city. Through teaching and performing, her love for dance continues to grow as she is privileged to share the joy it brings with others. Dancing is her favorite language and she encourages students to speak through movement.
