Her specialties include mime and clowning, modern dance, composition and dance improvisation. Heather is fascinated by the moving body, and strives to increase her knowledge of different movement modalities and methods. She completed her BFA in Secondary School Drama from the University of Calgary, completing a Minor in Dance, studying Graham, Limon and Cunningham techniques, jazz dance, choreography, dance improvisation, anatomy/kinesiology and dance for education. She went on to attain a B.Ed. in Drama Education (with Distinction) from the University of Lethbridge. Since that time, she has taught for Edmonton Public Schools for 20 years, usually as a Drama and Dance teacher. Heather has been teaching at J'Adore Dance for over 5 years.
