Inspiration, motivation and dedication are three important skills to have while learning dance. I begin by figuring out what has inspired my students to start dancing, what motivates them, and then dedicate each lesson to guiding them in the right direction to become the best dancer they can be. I have been teaching for 7 years and love watching students grow and fall more in love with dance. I am experienced in ballet, jazz, hip hop, jazz fusion, contemporary, lyrical, musical theatre and ballroom. I look forward to sharing my love for dance with you!

About Heather K.

Originally from Des Moines, IA, Heather began her dance training at Westside Dance Academy. There, her love for dance began and continued to grow. She studied ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, and hip hop. She competed in many competitions throughout the Midwest and had the opportunity to perform in Disneyland for their 50th Anniversary Celebration. Heather continued to dance throughout her college career at Northwestern College, IA. Studying theatre along with dance expanded her musical theatre training and she was privileged to choreograph for theatrical performances, as well as dance showcases. After graduating, and upon moving to Chicago, she continued to push herself into using her love for both theatre and dance to choreograph for events and showcases, as well as participating in music videos throughout the city. She has enjoyed sharing her love for dance through teaching at studios, schools and park districts in Chicago and the surrounding area. Everyone has their own story to tell. She encourages students to tell their story through dancing. "We dance to express what words cannot."
