(Owner, Creator, Certified Instructor)
began dance at the early age of 5. As she began her teen years she wanted
to try a form of dance that would be more expressive and fit her personality.
Heather has always been amazed by Belly Dancing and decided to give it a try.
After her first class she was hooked with the beautiful flowing movements
and gorgeous costumes. She enjoyed learning this new form of dance and
incorporating props such as canes, Isis wings, veils, swords and
zills. She quickly began attending all types of Belly Dance classes at
several different schools and workshops in NYC to be the best she could. Heather began performing at many Performing Art Centers and Private
Parties. With her undeniable love for Belly Dancing secure, Heather also
wanted to try another form of dance that was extremely physical and
challenging. She was looking to push herself outside the comfort zone and get
in the best shape of her life. She gave Pole Dancing a try and it was
love at first spin. Heather found Pole Dancing to be sexy and fun
while pushing her body to do things she never thought possible. It was
extremely physically challenging. It was the perfect outlet to be creative and
tone her body. Within 3 weeks she could start to see a
transformation of her body. At 8 weeks she had lost 20 pounds
and a new lean and firm version of Heather was born. She loved the way her body
looked and knew it was from Pole Dancing. Heather attended a rigorous
training program to obtain her Certification as a Certified Pole Dance
these two forms of dance and achieving her Pole Dance Fitness Instructor Certification,
Heather knew she wanted to bring dance and fitness into other women's lives.
Heather opened her own dance and fitness studio,
Shimmy Dance Studio Inc. in 2010! Dance defines Heather and
fills her heart and soul with happiness. When she is dancing she comes alive
and nothing makes her happier. Heather loves to teach her students and watch them come alive with dance and a new sense of confidence.
