Heather Liposky(she/her), Michigan native, moved to New York City in 2013 to pursue her career as a versatile performer. Her love for dance began at 5yrs old where after years of competitive dance and attending Oakland University, she knew it was her passion. On scholarship, courtesy of The PULSE, Heather is a graduate from the Professional Semester here at Broadway Dance Center. Heather constantly expands her training by studying in a variety of styles that include, but are not limited to, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Musical Theater, and Tap. Training as an adaptable dancer holds strong importance to Heather as she hopes to ignite this already planted seed within her students and watch them explore while growing stylistically as well as technically.
As a performer, Heather has performed at many different shows and venues such as The Javits Center, International Emmy Awards, World of Dance, APAP, Young Choreographers Festival and the Capezio ACE Awards (New York - Derek Mitchell / LA - Marinda Davis awarded 2nd runner up). Heather is an original cast member of Freedom Riders: A New Musical Choreographed by Jon Rua, presented during the New York Music Festival (NYMF). Other honorable credits include: Burning Man- The Musical, Jay Sean, Kid Rock, 3oh!3, Brooklyn X-Factor, Good Morning America, Nickelback, Sondre Lerche, and Jason Derulo.
As an educator, Heather is grateful to have learned from and been (continually) shaped by some of the most educated, caring, and inspiring Teachers in the industry here at Broadway Dance Center. She believes in the importance of what being a true Teacher entails and the platform in which it holds in shaping the youth in regards to the correct training, work ethic, positive nurturing, and leading by example as an honest human and artist collectively.
With a quirky and bright spirit, Heather is excited to enlighten a deeper connection and understanding of movement within her students by binding her dynamic training between technique, shapes, and lines with rhythm, passion, and imagination. She strives to create a lively environment that encourages individuality, personality, and raw creative energy. One where hard work feels good, shows and is celebrated! Heather is beyond excited to have a positive influence on her students’ year and is grateful to help mold well rounded, kind little humans in our dance community. Read less
