tori heibel

Tori has been dancing since the age of three, and has been training and performing ever since. Her training consists of an emphasis in traditional Broadway jazz, as well as in the disciplines of tap, ballet, lyrical, contemporary and hip hop. Her first experience dancing onstage was at the age of four as a tapping seahorse in Kirkpatrick’s School of Dance’s production of Bali Hai. She built her foundation in dance at Dance Arts Center, on the San Francisco Peninsula, under the direction of the renowned choreographer, Berle Davis, with instruction in jazz by Jan Chandler, in tap by Robyn Orth Tribuzi, and ballet by Jayne Zaban. Tori developed her performance quality and stage presence by singing and dancing in her school and community musical productions. She attributes her energetic style and choreography skills to her many years as the captain of her middle school and high school cheerleading squads. As an adult, Tori continued dancing in college with the dance department at UC Davis, and later with Tude’s School of Dance and Dance Arts Center.

Tori joined Ariel Dance Productions as a dancer in 2013 and began instructing in 2017. She loves ADP and her dance family for sharing her passion and allowing her to express herself in a safe and nurturing environment. She hopes to instill that passion in each of her students.
Tori is a graduate of UC Davis with degrees in Biotechnology and Business. She currently works as a corporate marketing professional for a major technology company.
