Owner, Director, Competition Coach and Ballet Teacher


Hi I’m Hailey! I have been teaching for over 10 years and I’ve been directing Eminence Dance Company for 5 years! One of my main goals as a director is to help students find their confidence and for each dancer who steps into our studio feel welcomed. My dance training began at the age of 3, I danced all the way until I graduated with my home studio Elite Dance Alliance under the direction of Heather Cashmore and Bonneville High School’s Drill team and Cheer team. After High school I continued my training with Weber State University’s dance team where we were awarded D1 National Hip Hop Champions. Since then I have been training hard with my amazing dance crew Underground Dance Company under the direction of Nick Cordova and Charly Northrup where I have had the opportunity to perform, choreograph, direct, perfect and learn many different styles of dance. Outside of dance I love to cook, spend time with my family, and hike. I’m looking forward to yet another amazing season with my Eminence Family!
