Dancing Arts Center Increases Faculty

by Karyn Edison


Hayley Kenney utilizes her work as a professional dancer with Elizabeth Higgins Dance Theatre, Bosoma Dance Company, and Sokolow Now! to teach intermediate modern dance classes.  Eve Costarelli and Kenney represent the fourth round of hiring this year for the Dancing Arts Center, due mainly to the increase in interest and recent enrollment.  DAC is known for open enrollment year-round and to responding to the needs of the community’s interests.

“Being able to hire more staff mid-year speaks to DAC’s deep connections in the dance community.  We are proud of our increasing enrollment and the ability to provide a breadth of experiences and styles from various dance company members, which in turn, gives students a richer dance education that is hard to match elsewhere,” says Dancing Arts Center Director Karyn Edison. “We are fortunate to have such professionals that are still so connected to their field and just as enthusiastic about teaching our art to others.”

Eve Costarelli has been teaching tap, flamenco and yoga in the Boston community for the past eighteen years. She is the founder and artistic director of the AdamAnt Eve Dancers, a youth dance troupe that combines traditional jazz tap and flamenco.  She also created the in-school program, Yoga-Snacks, and as part of the Young Audiences of Massachusetts, travels to schools (K-12) to teach flamenco through her program The Birth of Flamenco. She also is a yoga teacher and member of the Massachusetts State Teaching Roster.

Hayley Kenney has a BFA in Dance from Florida State University. In 2004, she moved to New York City to begin her career as a professional dancer, performing with Durfee & Dancers, WORKS/Laura Glenn Dance, and Elizabeth Higgins Dance Theatre.

She was on faculty at the White Mountain Summer Dance Festival from 2004 to 2006, where she taught Repertory and Pre-Technique. In 2006, she relocated to Massachusetts and danced three seasons with BoSoma Dance Company. After a three-year break from performing, Kenney joined Sokolow Now! under the direction of Lorry May. Kenney and teaches Pilates in Lincoln, RI.

Members of the community are always welcome to make an appointment to visit our school and see our classes in action.

 About the Dancing Arts Center:

The Dancing Arts Center, located in Holliston, Massachusetts, provides instruction in

classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, character, hip hop, pointe, pas de deux, and choreography, and offers a variety of other performance-related classes through the year.  DAC’s teaching foundation is based on the philosophy that good dance training awakens the senses and stimulates emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. It believes in nurturing each student’s desires, and enhancing their love of dance, through creative expression, exploration, and discovery.

Its small class size fosters careful, and progressive development of each student’s artistry.
