From the age of five, dance has been a part of Heather Newbold’s life. She began with Scottish, and then involved ballet, tap, jazz and Irish. Dance has provided Heather with great opportunities, such as, dancing in Ballet West’s Nutcracker, appearing as a featured extra in Disney’s The Luck of the Irish, and being selected as Layton High School’s Dance Sterling Scholar recipient.
Heather began competing with An Coimisiun Le Rinci Gaelacha at the age of 16. She has received training from members of Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, and Trinity Irish Dance Company, and has performed with fiddler Mairead Nesbitt, of Celtic Woman fame.
Heather also teaches English and Applied Skills full-time at Davis High School.
