Hayley Barker


Dance Specialist

I was born in Gloucester, England and moved to Chicagoland area as a child. At an early age I began playing clarinet, which eventually lead me down the path to dance. In 2017 I completed my Bachelor's in Dance then spent a year working as a freelance dancer and teacher in Melbourne, Australia. I am excited to be back in Chicago, equipped with new information for the incredible students at BISC-LP. Chicago offers the opportunity to compliment my teaching career with a performance and choreography career, and I am eager to take full advantage!

As someone lucky enough to have international experiences, I firmly believe unique and global opportunities enhance every student's life. I am proud to be part of a team working to provide worldwide exposure to our students. The way our students take on each day here with courage and open mindedness is absolutely inspirational.
