Heather Myers is an independent dance artist.
Based in Vancouver, Canada, she works domestically and internationally as a freelance choreographer, teacher and performer.

Heather has also been an organizer of publicly presented, multi-disciplinary improvisation projects in Holland.
During her years as a dancer with Alberta Ballet, Boston Ballet, Netherlands Dance Theatre, and as a freelance artist Heather performed works by Petipa, Balanchine, Kylian, Forsythe, Ohad Naharin, Lightfoot/Leon and others, and was involved in the creations of artists such as Crystal Pite, Jorma Elo, Ivan Perez, Amanda Miller, Lucinda Childs and Mark Morris.
Heather has taught classical, contemporary, repertoire and improvisation classes for Ballet British Columbia, Netherlands Dance Theatre’s Education Department, Amsterdam Theaterschool, Dance Forum Taipei, Taipei University, Korzo Theater, Boston Ballet School, and in other organizations and situations.
Though the above mentioned are quite separate practices, Heather seeks to research and progress in all of her endeavors. She is interested in working in a wide variety of creative situations and collaborations.
