Hilary studied tap, jazz, and ballet at Dance Arts Center for over 20 years. Tap dance has always been her love, and she is proud to bring the technique and training she learned from her mentor, Berle Davis, into her own teaching. In addition to teaching tap classes at Dance Arts Center for many years, she has performed extensively with companies like Broadway By the Bay, Diablo Theatre Company, Contra Costa Musical Theater, and Woodminster Theatre. While at Yale University, she choreographed for and performed with the school’s tap dance troupe and taught several weekly classes for students and faculty. She has also choreographed for middle and high schools around the Bay Area. She loves working with students on their dance and personal growth, and is excited to share her passion for the intricacies and joy of tap dance with students at The Ballet School.
