Hayley Schmidt
CMC Director/Instructor

Hayley Schmidt

Hayley Schmidt has been dancing since before she could walk! She spent the first part of her dance career competing in dance competitions throughout the Mid-West. She has taken Master Classes at Broadway Dance Center in New York City and at The Edge in Los Angeles. Miss Hayley graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, CA in 2005 with a degree in Performing Arts & Dance. After a summer spent teaching at a performing arts camp, Miss Hayley found her love for the arts and teaching could be beautifully intertwined. Miss Hayley went on to pursue a degree in teaching and graduated from Cleveland State University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

Hayley’s experience teaching Pre Kindergarten and preschool, her college education, along with her years spent teaching dance enable her to bring to CMC a well rounded program that is focused on the whole child.  Creative Movement Center is a dream come true for Miss Hayley. She looks forward to another season to share her ideas, passion, and love of dance with her students.

Hayley & CMC Co-Owner Geoff are married and reside in Broadview Heights with their children, Gavin and Giuliana.


Hayley & Geoff Schmidt share the dream of creating a place where children of all ages and abilities can come to create, grow and chase their dreams.  They are entrepeuners and are proud to work together as a family to fulfill this dream.
