Mrs. Kerianne Hinerman started dancing at the age of three. For sixteen years to follow, she extensively trained and performed classical ballet technique with renowned teachers, professionals, schools and ballet companies. Some of these schools and companies include The Pennsylvania Ballet, The Harid Conservatory, The Eglevsky Ballet, and The Washington Ballet.
Ballroom dance peaked Kerianne’s attention when she was in high school. She took dance lessons with Mr. Roland Dutcher of the Arthur Murray dance studio in Gaithersburg, MD. A few years later while taking some time off from the rigid world of ballet, Kerianne took more lessons at an Arthur Murray studio outside of Harrisburg, PA and eventually taught a beginning class for multiple sessions.
When Kerianne was 25 years old she turned her attention to modern dance and joined Arts United of Washington DC, a modern dance company, while also achieving an Honors in Associate of Arts degree in Dance from Montgomery College. In 2003 she professionally pursued the aerial arts including silks and trapeze, and was a founding member of the aerial company, Updraft: A Conspiracy of Movement. She performed with Updraft at the DC Capital Fringe Festival, Saint Joseph’s University, the Shepherdstown Folly, the Baltimore Theater Project, and the French Embassy. During her seven-year tenure training and performing as an aerial artist, Kerianne also taught aerial workshops in the Washington DC area.
Perhaps the greatest joy of Kerianne’s dancing life has been social dancing during the last eighteen years. She enjoys the traditional folk set dances, as well as couple dances like waltz, polka, two-step, schotish, and swing. Her favorite place to dance is in the Spanish Ballroom located in Glen Echo Park, MD which is where she happened to meet her husband.
Since 2011, Kerianne has been teaching at the Eastern Shore Dance Academy and sharing the joy and history of dance, with children and adults alike. She has taught all ages and at different studios throughout her dance career and looks forward to meeting and sharing her knowledge of dance with many others in the future! She lives in the Cambridge area with her husband and two children who also dance. Currently, Kerianne is exploring ballroom dance more seriously in her career and has begun training with Amanda and Aggie in 2018; her hopes are to teach ballroom to others in the local Eastern Shore area.
Kerianne will be teaching Dancing on the Shore’s beginner group lessons in Cambridge at the Eastern Shore Dance Academy. She will be available for lessons in Cambridge, Easton and Salisbury area.
