After high school, she moved to the Bay Area and received her BA in Dance from Saint Mary’s College of California (SMC) and was awarded the Louis LeFevre Award for Performing Arts. Hailey went on to obtain her MFA in Dance: Creative Practice at SMC, where she was presented with the School of Liberal Arts Dean’s Award. To further enrich her training Hailey has studied at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Dance in London, the Broadway Dance Center in New York City and the Waterfront Playhouse & Conservatory Meisner training program in Berkeley, CA. Professionally, Hailey has danced with Davalos Dance Company, Jia Wu Dance Theatre, Diablo Theatre Company, Woodminster Summer Musicals, Jumpin’ at the Sun Dance Company and mBody Dance company.
