HALEY KISCH
All-Abilities Workshop Instructor

Haley Kisch is originally from Indianapolis, Indiana. She began taking ballet lessons at age ten, also training in modern, jazz, tap and musical theatre over the years. She was a member of the Honors Program and studied dance and history at Anderson University, graduating magna cum laude in 2016. Haley's choreography was featured in Anderson University dance concerts, and in 2015 she became the first dance major to premiere a full-length dance show. She has taught dance at YMCAs and Brookside Dance Academy. While at Anderson, she worked in the dance office and found an appreciation for administration in the arts. Haley was first introduced to all-abilities dance by the company Dancing Wheels, whom she had the chance to study with during a summer intensive. Since then, she has become involved with all-abilities dance in Chicago, performing with MOMENTA Dance Company and other local choreographers. Haley works with Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts as the Front Desk Team Lead in addition to teaching.
