Born Out West, brief stint Back East, became her best in the Midwest, Heidi has a diverse background straddling both hemispheres (of her brain). Known for organizing and wrangling skills in the business world, she now strongly embraces her first love: the arts. She has a BA in music performance and training in dance which has been ever-present in her life since she was a wee one. To that basket of goodies she has added photography, water color painting, writing, languages and is a connector of like-minded folks who should get to know each other better. Heidi is moved by beauty in things both great and small and desires to inspire others to see the world in different ways.

What’s next?

Dance and music have mesmerized Heidi since she was five. Classically trained as a flutist, she holds a bachelor’s degree in musical performance. She’s expressed her passion for dance through musical theater, dancing in a salsa troupe, and high-kicking in a chorus line on national television. She spins fire and silk, and loves partner dancing in west coast swing, salsa and most recently zouk. Dancing has been a means of expression, growth, and community.

Heidi returns to the stage as Sweet Lotus, a persona that is blossoming after working and growing through much muck and mire. Her performance for the Ritual Rhythms show is an exploration of self love.
