What’s your name and where are you in the world?

Hi, I’m Heather and I am based in North Wales, United Kingdom.

What kind of dance do you currently offer? 

I am currently offering dance workshops in Jazz, Modern dance, Contemporary, Lyrical, Technique and Dance Fitness

What got you into dance? 

My passion for dance started when I was really young, it has helped with my confidence a lot and has given me so many memories. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to dance and to be able to enjoy what we love about it.

I have 18 years dance experience, completing many dance examinations from ISTD and NATD, and I have recently graduated with a BA(Hons) in Dance from Edge Hill University. I am trained and have experience in Ballet, Contemporary, Modern Dance, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Commercial, Irish, Flamenco and Capoeira.

I have performed in the Wizard of Oz at Storyhouse in Chester. I have also performed at The Dance World Cup in Portugal in 2019.

I currently work as a freelance dance teacher teaching specifically jazz and contemporary, and I have experience teaching ballet at University as part of the dance society there.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I enjoy going to the theatre, reading, and watching movies, especially Marvel, Disney and romance movies. I spend a lot of time with my family and friends, as well as my dog. I love going on walks and being able to spend time outdoors. 

What do you love about the area you live and work in?

North Wales is a great place as it has so much culture and creativity itself and also has great links to other places in the country.

Why did you want to work with Popdance?

I wanted to work with Popdance because they seem a fun and loving company and I would like to expand my experience and love teaching people about dance.
