My name is Hayley, and I think you should dance.

I don’t know how many times I’ve been told, “I’m kind of a closeted dancer.” I believe that these words are true for almost everyone, and I’d like to give you the confidence to come out of that closet and never look back.

Dancing inspires true connection for anyone who allows themselves to indulge; connection to self, others, and to the present moment. I believe with all my heart, and have lots of scientific evidence to support (just saying…) that dance is one of the best things you can do to improve the health of your body and mind.

I’ve done a lot of different kinds of dance in a lot of different places and settings, and enjoyed every single experience. I’ve never been able to call one kind of dance my favorite, and am finding new ones to be passionate about every single year. I truly believe that there is a dance out there for everyone, if not more, and I’d like to help you find yours. Come dance with me!!


What should we explore?

All classes listed are offered and encouraged to both children and adults at the beginner-intermediate level, in the form of private lessons, or small group instruction.



“Hayley completely changed how I look at dance. Before going to Dryad Dance, I thought that dancing was a skill you were born with, you either had it or you didn’t. After a few sessions with Hayley I started to see that dance is a mentality.” -Allison, 27, 2018

“Hayley is a brilliant dance teacher - learning dance from her feels completely comfortable, natural, and fun!….Dance is something that we should all enjoy, and I would say Hayley’s one of the best teachers I’ve encountered. I would encourage anyone to learn from her.” Alex, 30, 2019

“Both my husband and I had NO intention of continuing to dance after our big day, but Hayley changed our minds completely. I’d recommend her to anyone of any level. She’s great!!” -Hannah and Joe, 24, 2018
