Meet our Featured Dancer

Dancer Spotlight:

Meet our featured dancer this month, Heather! 


She has been dancing with Dance Gallery Chicago since the young age of 3!

This is her 8th year dancing with us! 11-year old Heather is busy working hard this session, she currently attends: Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop AND lyrical classes! When not dancing, she also enjoys tumbling and baking.

“People know me for my flexibility. People say I am a hard worker and a kind person.”

Heather has been performing in Chicago competitions with Dance Gallery for many many years now. She was also part of the elite performance group that performed in Disney World just last summer!


Q: Why do you love to dance?

“I love to dance because it is fun and relieves my stress. It’s a great form of exercise. I am also proud of my level of flexibility and determination!

Q: Why Do You Love Dance Gallery Chicago Studio?

“I love all the people. They are supportive, its like a home away from home. The instructors are very encouraging, especially Miss Marylee.”

Q: What are your favorite classes & personal goals:

“I like lyrical because it is a peaceful, elegant, calming dance class.

& My goal this year is to get my perfect ‘arabesque’.” 

She loves being onstage and showing her talents. She says her biggest challenge this year is the demanding dance schedule while balancing her school year. She says she will ‘use her time wisely’.

“I am inspired to keep dancing because I can see my improvements and keep learning new things.”

Her dance class instructors have been observing Heather working so hard in her classes and throughout the years, she is a wonderful dancer with personality, confidence and technique as she performs!

Her dream is to have a lyrical solo dance. I would also like a role on a TV show like ‘The World of Dance’.

Favorite Quote: “Persevere, never give up and try your hardest. (that is what my mom told me all the time).”
