You’re sitting with friends on a patio, connecting over liquid carbs, and you’re imagining a unique, hilarious and skilled new friend you’d like to meet; maybe someone who’s been in the comedy industry, someone who was an award-winning belly dancer – oh and they should have almost a decade of Muay Thai experience for the super hero factor. You may chortle and think that person doesn’t exist! Until you meet Hayley ‘Haylestorm’ that is.
“I was a professional belly dancer, Irish danced for 13 years, played the violin/fiddle, my dad was a professional comedian with a show on CBC and I performed comedy with him as a teen.” explains Haylestorm. Keeping all her limbs busy she then transitioned from dance to boxing, Muay Thai and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
In Haylestorm’s classes you can expect all genres of music (90s, pop, classic rock, reggae, edm and more) and huge energy. “I may be small, but I am mighty, and I will summon that energy and ‘think big’ mentality from my guests!”
“If four things are followed - having a great aim, acquiring knowledge, hard work, and perseverance - then anything can be achieved.”
