   Welcome to Heartland Conservatory of Dance, directed by Rachel Vickrey. This school reflects Rachel's artistic sensibilities, educational principles and love of kids. Quality dance is a tradition for Rachel. She grew up watching her parents perform in major classical ballet companies and then teaching in some of the best schools in the nation. Following in their footsteps, Rachel also danced professionally and has taught ballet, tap and jazz in dance schools around the nation. Her commitment and feeling of responsibility to each child’s training is why Heartland Conservatory of Dance is known for superior dance training and individual attention in a nurturing environment. The Conservatory provides the care and attention that each dancer needs and deserves to grow to their full potential through participation in student showcases, full length ballets (in collaboration with Heartland Youth Ballet), and other community programs.
