MEET THE DIRECTORS
Hillary began her dance career before she was even 3 years old. She studied ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, hula, and acrobats. She competed on local, state and national stages across America, winning numerous awards and scholarships. She continued her dance training at Butler University and Jordan College Academy of Dance in Indianapolis and later Sinclair Community College. Hillary continued performing and choreographing for schools and performing arts centers in Indiana and Ohio, while taking adult classes at Dayton Ballet. Hillary loved all aspects of the performing arts, from dance to theatre, and knew Greenville and Darke County would be the best home for this dream. Hillary co-founded Final Bow: Center for Children's Performing Arts in 2013 and has helped grow the program from 16 students, to well over 200 students, last year. As she enters her 33rd year of dance education and performance, she hopes that she can continue sharing her love for the performing arts, especially those 3 year olds, just like her so many years ago.
Hillary currently resides in Greenville, with her four boys, Graham, Max, Eli and Trey.
