VDA Artist Profile #47
Haley began her dance training in her home state of New Jersey. With a focus in ballet since age four, she continued her training attending summer intensives with The Rock School, Saratoga Summer Dance, and The Mercyhurst Dance Experience during which she was blessed to work with Bruce Marks, Melinda Roy, Ashley Bouder, and Eva Szabo. Haley graduated from Mercyhurst University cum laude in 2012 with a BA in Dance and a minor in Arts Administration. While at Mercyhurst she taught open ballet classes through the The Mercyhurst Center for Dance Education, performed with the Lake Erie Ballet Company, and played Carmen in "Sweet Charity". A versatile artist, Haley has also performed as an actress at the Off-Broadstreet Theatre in "Black Tie" (Elsie) and "The Fantasticks" (The Mute).
In 2016 she moved to Vermont from Philadelphia where she taught the members of Penn Ballet at the University of Pennsylvania, and ballet and theater dance to all ages at the Philadelphia Dance Academy. She performed with Beyond Dance Company, Reverie Dance Theatre, and Esstant Dance Company. Haley was also the Programing Manager of the Koresh Dance Company from 2013-2016, after managing the inaugural Come Together Dance Festival that has since become a staple program for emerging and established dance companies in Philadelphia.
Currently she teaches ballet across Vermont to ages 3 to adult, and dances with PH Dance & Ers.
