Hayley started training at the age of 5 years old in her home town of Chilliwack BC. Focusing on Jazz, Tap and Ballet, Hayley continued her dance education by taking classes and competing throughout the lower mainland for nine years.
At the age of 14 she was accepted into the Northwest Dance Project Company based out of Abbotsford BC where she continued her training adding Hip Hop, Musical Theatre and Contemporary where she found her true passion.
With Northwest Dance Project she had the opportunities to travel and compete through out Canada and the United States. At this time she studied at The Edge Centre in LA and Broadway Dance Centre in New York City.
Between traveling the world to learn and experience different cultures she has taught and choreographed independently as well as with Dance In Motion Studios in Abbotsford, Soul Funktion Dance Studio in Whistler and locally at the Pemberton Community Centre. During her travels she broadened her dance knowledge by sampling styles from different countries such as Hip Hop in New Zealand, Ballet in Spain and Capoeira in Brazil.
Opening Mountain Movement has been a dream of hers since she first came to Pemberton and saw all the young families, specifically the young girls in tutu’s riding their bikes on the pump track. She felt it would be a business that not only added value to the community but also to the lives of children that grow up here. Her goal is to share the sense of accomplishment that comes from dedicating a part of yourself to a craft and reaching goals by pushing past what you think your capable of.
After studying Business at UVIC and Camosun this past fall Hayley feels she is prepared to start a sustainable business and share her gift with the families of Pemberton.
