Heather has enjoyed dance classes since she was three years old. She has been a classical dance instructor in Wilmington for 15 years specializing in modern, jazz, ballet, and pointe. After training with instructors of various styles in Houston, Huntsville (AL), Birmingham (AL), Atlanta, New York and Paris, Heather was awarded dance scholarships for college, but was unable to pursue that route due to an injury. That change of course eventually led her to explore yoga and Pilates, and the experience fostered a greater appreciation for the gift of dance. Heather truly appreciates the opportunity to share her love of dance with students of all ages. Heather has choreographed and performed for the North Carolina Dance Festival, as well as other local shows, and danced in a movie filmed here in Wilmington. She is a certified instructor of yoga, Pilates mat classes and Pilates reformer method. Heather has a degree in Marine Biology and works as a research specialist for the North Carolina Coastal Reserve. She is happy to be a dancing scientist and encourages her students to follow their dreams.
