    Celebrity Photo Of The Month

    Show Director, Christine Brant with Heather Ferri

    Heather Ferri spent over a decade in New York City working on Broadway, choreographing, and producing shows. She created a Guinness Book of World Records record for 16 continuous turns in tap shoes. Heather, a Tap Master, travels the world where she continues to study while choreographing new works. Her last show "Hoofer" was produced by Civic Light Opera in Pittsburgh. Heather has a BA in Dance from Point Park University and is a member of their faculty. She is a graduate of the prestigious Masters program at California University, has several Pilates certifications, and a Kundalini Yoga certification from KRI in New Mexico.

    Miss Heather is one talented (and busy!) woman who has judged several times for I LOVE DANCE over the past ten years - and now has written a book!

    Victim to Victory, is an intimate memoir of how she used dance and theatre as a child to escape the abuse in her home.

    "I spent the first ten years of my adult life as a Broadway performer where I utilized dance and theater to convey stories
    and address my inner pain.  As a child, I took an oath never to show my authentic self. I grew up like many of you - in generational abusive patterns where yelling was common and issues were slipped under the table.”
    Heather now speaks to associations, is hired as a trauma healer, and is writing a documentary.
