Hayley is a Buffalo girl through and through and could not be more excited to root ConvergeDance in this wonderful city. Hayley grew up in Buffalo, dancing at David DeMarie Dance, Royal Academy of Ballet, and Pick of the Crop. Hayley graduated Summa Cum Laude from The University of Buffalo with a B.A. in Dance and a minor in Business Administration (feel free to call her multi-talented). Hayley has spent time in both California and New York City, training with amazing choreographers and dancers such as Sean Curran, Donald McKayle, Dana Foglia, Ron Brown, and many more. Hayley has performed in a number of local dance companies including the University of Buffalo’s Zodaique Dance Ensemble, (the late) Buffalo Contemporary, and Anne Burnidge and Dancers. Hayley has also choreographed for University of Buffalo’s Zodiaque Dance Company and choreographed and performed for Brooklyn based music group, Planet Rump.
Hayley teaches dance locally at Royal Academy of Ballet and is a self-described Pilates extraordinaire. Through her blossoming business, Buffalo In-Home Pilates, she teaches customized, private Pilates sessions to people of all ages and walks of life. She absolutely loves how her knowledge of the body from dance has translated into an ability to help people get fit and healthy!
As the founder and Artistic Director of ConvergeDance Buffalo, Hayley looks forward to growing the audience for dance in Buffalo and beyond!
