Originally from Park Ridge, Heather Zimny holds a BA in dance from Columbia College Chicago and both a 200 hour Power Yoga Certification and a Yoga Sculpt Certification from Corepower Yoga. She can currently also be seen onstage with the Joel Hall Dancers with whom she has danced with for the majority of her career. Heather has travelled both nationally and internationally with the company and has danced in many of Mr. Hall's world premieres. Other dance credits include Rasa Dance Chicago, Trifecta Dance Collective, Lucid Banter Project, Alliance Dance Company, Ballet Entre Nous, D. I. A. L, Paul Sanasardo and numerous independent choreographers and appearances in music videos. Dance has taken her all over world performing on stages in multiple festivals and concerts across the U.S.(Spring To Dance St. Louis, Exchange Festival in Tulsa, Minnesota Fringe Festival, Anita’s Way in Times Square NY, Big River Festival in Huntington WV, and Miami Beach Florida) as well as overseas in Liverpool as a part of their LEAP program’s 10th year anniversary. She is grateful to be directing, choreographing and teaching aspiring dancers throughout both the city and the burbs when she is not performing. Heather continues to train and develop her artistry at the Joel Hall Dance Center, Lou Conte Dance Studio, and Visceral Dance Center in addition to sprinkling in some yoga for good measure. She began her aerial journey with classes at Aerial Dance Chicago and is continually inspired by the amazing artists she has the opportunity to learn from and share the marley with. Heather is thrilled to be continuing with ADC this season as a dancer and is jazzed about all of the amazing experiences and challenges that will unfold.
