About Heidi...

 

She has been a dancer for 30+ years, with training in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and Tap.  She grew up in Ohio and danced with the Cuyahoga Valley Youth Ballet for eight years.  At age sixteen, she discovered her love for musical theatre and went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater and Dance from Otterbein University.  She then moved to New York City where, for the next decade, she worked as a professional dancer/singer/actor in musical theater.  Some of her favorite performance credits include the Broadway National Tour of Oklahoma!, Spamalot, and Mary Poppins.   In addition to performing, she is an accomplished director and choreographer, working on shows such as 9 to 5, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, and countless drama camps for children.  She has also done regional commercials, industrials, and print work. 

 

She is a certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, receiving her RYT 200-hour certification from Joschi Yoga Institute in New York City.  She has taught

at studios all over the country, from New York City to California.  She finds

yoga special because it unites the body, mind, spirit, and emotions in an energizing and positive activity that helps people feel more centered

and calm, equipping them to deal with all aspects of life with a more

open and positive approach.  Her background in dance has given her

not only a great respect and knowledge of the body, but it has also

made her passionate about keeping the body in good health and

helping others to care for their bodies in the best way possible. 

 

She had the unique opportunity to be the Dance Program Manager

for EXOS at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA.  In

addition to managing dance classes for 20,000+ Google

employees, she also organized performance opportunities,

social events, team buildings, and guest workshops.

Currently, she teaches for Momentum Excellence,

a dance outreach program for inner city

children.  She choreographs for local

theatres and organizations, such

as The Butterfly Guild of

Nationwide Children's Hospital.  

She also teaches yoga and performs

on the side for fun.
