Hilary is a Toronto-based dancer, actor, and vocalist. She attended Windsor’s St. Clair College, where she received her diploma in Music Theatre Performance and extensive training as a ‘triple threat’. Since then, she has had the pleasure of working with companies such as Random Acts of Dance, Back Burner Productions, Mixed Company Theatre, W Network, and TLN Television in conjunction with Canada’s Wonderland. She is proud to teach with U Got Dance, Toronto’s largest mobile dance studio, and has previous experience teaching for other after-school dance companies and studios in the area.
Hilary’s dance training spans a wide range of styles including jazz, modern, hip hop, ballet, and tap, and she would love to add latin and ballroom to that list in the near future! A true believer in the value of hard work, Hilary continues to take classes from artists and educators across the city, and she feels lucky to have learned from dancers whom she admires.
Hilary is thrilled to be working with Kendra Hughes and can’t wait to see what her future with Kinetic Elements will hold!
