Meet Heather, in her own words:

Heather Baur has been teaching, dancing and choreographing for the past 15 years. She holds a Dance Education Licensure from Kent State (OH) and is a graduate of Bowling Green State University (OH) where she obtained her B.A. Science and Education. Other educational experience includes studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and the University of Urbino in Italy. After college she performed in NYC with The Vissi Dance Theater and acted as The Assistant Dance Director at St. Joseph’s Magnet Arts High School. Upon her return to Cleveland she spent five years dancing with MorrisonDance.

Heather then relocated to Maine where was a principle dancer with Collective Motion and Sonar Dance. In Maine she also helped produce and direct the New England Dance Project. She taught at Berwick Academy, and started a dance/yoga program at Falmouth High School. Heather has been commissioned to choreograph and perform works in NYC, Cleveland and in Maine. Her experience extends internationally in Israel at the Yitzhak International Arts Gathering.

Heather has returned again to her hometown, where she continues to perform and create with MorrisonDance, The Birds that Walk at Night and has become a 200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. She currently teaches at YogaSquared. As the ancient Zen Proverb says “Move, and the way will open.”

Favorite Spot: Every Blooming Thing. I could roam around that store every day. Or Gypsy Grace and the Vintage Goat. Or – off the beaten path – Compass Coffee.

I live and work in Highland Square. I love finding all the little fun, off the beaten path places to hang out at or shop from. I feel like there is such a great sense of community in this area. There is a thriving art, music, food and yoga community!
