Apprentice

Heather began dancing at Dance Academy of Antioch at the age of four under the direction of Amy Hunter. Her love for dance quickly blossomed into a lifelong passion. Although she trained in a variety of styles, including jazz, ballet, lyrical, contemporary, modern, hip hop, and musical theatre, tap was always her favorite. Heather expanded her tap training by attending Chicago Human Rhythm Project and taking classes through their Youth Tap Ensemble Conference. Heather pursued a career in dance by attending Oklahoma City University, where she attained a BPA in Dance Performance and expanded her knowledge of teaching and choreographing, while performing in several shows with the American Spirit Dance Company. During her collegiate years, she had the opportunity to spend a summer interning for Chicago Tap Theatre and performing as an Evil Henchperson in their reproduction of Changes (2016). Having fallen in love with the company and the work it produced, Heather is extremely thankful to be a part of Chicago Tap Theatre and work alongside of so many talented people!
