Hillary E.

Graduated 2012

What have you been up to since graduation?

You've seen me around the studio since I graduated in 2012! While being a full-time student at Conestoga for Office Administration, I was a part-time teacher at Star. I have also received my Teacher's certificate from Dance Masters of America (DMA) in Jazz and Tap. In 2016, I moved from teaching to the Co-ordinator of YCP, Rec Programs, Dance Events, and the Star Team. This past year, I have now added marketing to my position. I still continue to enrich my teacher training by going to workshops and conventions!

How has dancing helped/influenced you with what you are doing now?

I don't know where I would be without dance. It is such a strong passion for me that it influenced my career! I will hopefully be able to say in the dance field for as long as I can. Outside of the dance field, it has also helped me in so many ways. What I feel that is the most important for me has to be balance and time management. Because of dance, I had to be able to organize my time to make sure all my homework was done, but also had some free time to spend with friends. I learned that without the ability to time manage, I would have felt overwhelmed with the work load of school, along with taking multiple classes at dance and trying to spend some time with friends and family.

Having graduated, do you have advice you wish to share for our current Star Team?

Remember that you are doing this because you love dance and being on stage. Yes, still work hard, try to improve, and all that jazz... but have fun and make memories too. I can honestly say that your dance family stays with you forever. Some of the most important people in my life I met because we danced together. Get to know your Star Team and make some great memories with them!
