While in college, Hayley was an instructor at Julie’s Competitive Edge Dance Academy in Spokane, WA. Following an undergrad degree in Psychology, Hayley coached and managed the Seattle University Dance Team for three years, taking the program from a small, grassroots organization to a Divison I-level program with full Division I Athletics department recognition and scholarship funding. In addition to the college level, Hayley coached and managed a pre-professional dance team for its inaugural season. Hayley also coached high school cheerleading for 5 years at a local school.

Description: Jazz 4-5 is not a beginner level and dancers are required to have had previous dance training in ballet or at least 2 years of jazz instruction. We advise a trial class if you are unsure if this level is appropriate for your dancer. Flexibility, alignment, isolations, basic turns and jumps will be stressed. This is a fast-paced class that requires style and energy!
