Heather entered into the world of arts & entertainment through acting at a young age. She was able to work in Film & TV, Voice Over and Print while represented by Characters Talent Management in Vancouver. She soon found a deep connection to dance that led her to train with Arts Umbrella (Vancouver), L'Ecole Superieur de Danse du Quebec (Montreal), Goh Ballet Academy (Vancouver) where she learned Ballet, Flamenco, Chinese Fan Dancing, Russian Character Dance with Jazz & Modern. Heather performed full length ballets touring with the Goh Ballet to China twice and France.
She then moved to Toronto where she began working in musical theatre and honing her singing as well as street style dance skills. She landed her first chorus role in a Charlottetown musical where she understudied the lead. She sang in three original musicals for Disney Cruise Lines playing such roles as Cinderella, Belle, Meg and more. Heather continued to work in musical theatre as she danced in Film & TV and acted in independent films.
After 5 years in Toronto Heather returned to Vancouver where she was able to play a multitude of characters on screen and in plays. Selected Credits: The Chris Isaak Show, Dead Like Me, Earthsea, Lizzie Mcguire Movie(Marty Kudelka, Kelly Konno), The Score (Crystal Pite).
Heather took interest in producing plays, directing and choreographing stage shows with a profound curiosity in the art of choreography. She immersed herself in street style training (Popping, B-girling, House, Waacking & Vogueing) and took part in many choreography focused research and development opportunities.
Through master classes Heather continues to share her experiences and knowledge hoping to help shape the next generation of dancers and choreographers with other community leaders.
