About Heather

Hi there! I have been dancing for a while, starting in high school in Englewood, TN. My first step was trying out for the CHS Lightning Dance Team. While on the team, I learned various choreographed routines based from a set of specialized steps. When I moved onto college, I joined the TTU Swing Dance Club in Cookeville, TN. This was my first step into social partner dancing. By my last year in the club, I was actually an officer. The most important thing I learned in this group is that there are many friends to be made because of the popularity. There are events and groups all over the place! Another group I joined in college was the Second Line Dance Company. This is a ballroom dancing group focused on learning more steps, following the general ballroom class. Each semester, the group comes up with varying performances for the ballroom class to enjoy at an end of the semester ball.

Immediately at the end of college, I started attending a ballroom dance studio in Knoxville, TN. Since then, I have focused on gaining my American Standard Ballroom Bronze certifications and competing. The first competition I attended was in Knoxville, and I placed first in every division I competed: beginner bronze, intermediate bronze, and full bronze - Cha cha, Rumba, East Coast Swing, Bolero, and Mambo. I am under the excellent direction of Jeremy Norris at Dance Tonight and have him to thank for my success.

As for handwriting, I love it. I have even considered making card writing a profession of mine. However, my love for teaching and sharing is a bit greater. I enjoy teaching and will happily help any individual learn the art of handwriting as well as the importance of knowing how to read it.

I am a very technical writer and focus on the most basic forms of each letter. It is important to me that anyone learning to write learn the basic forms of writing before experimenting with different artistic styling.

I am currently pursuing my bronze teaching certification in rhythm. Therefore, I am focused on the basic forms of each of the dances: Cha cha, Rumba, East Coast Swing, Bolero, and Mambo. Over time I will be expanding further.

I have a fairly open schedule and look forward to meeting you! I look forward to hearing from you :)
