Hilliary DeVall - Office Manager/Teaching Staff
Hilliary DeVall has been with JCDC since April 2019 as the Office Manager. This year, Hilliary is so excited to continue her journey not only as the Office Manager but also as a studio teacher!
Before coming to be with JCDC full time, Hilliary received a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies with teaching licensure from Averett University and her Masters in Curriculum & Instruction and Instructional Technology from University of Virginia. She was a kindergarten teacher for five years in Pittsylvania County and decided to take a year off to stay home with her son, Archer, and work at JCDC full time for a year in 2020-2021. She loved it so much that she decided to make it a permanent move!
Hilliary is a Danville native who grew up in the dance world. She spent 13 years training at the Meredith Gravely School of Dance in ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, contemporary, and hip hop. During her time there, she attended numerous Dance Masters of America dance conventions, participated in guest choreographer classes held by the studio, and was cast in the dance troupe with The Great Russian Ballet’s performance of “The Nutcracker” in 2003.
Hilliary also served as a youth football and basketball cheer coach and choreographer for several years for the Tunstall district of the Pittsylvania County Youth League, has choreographed several opening numbers for local pageants, and served as a talent coach for many local pageant participants. Hilliary has also served as an assistant coach, and eventually head coach of the Junior Varsity Cheerleading Squad at Tunstall High School from 2015 - 2018.
Most recently, Hilliary jumped back into choreographing as she helped to choreograph the 2021 JCDC Kickline! Hilliary is very excited to be back in the dance studio this year and can’t wait to share her love of dance with everyone at JCDC! She will still be serving in her full capacity as office manager, costume guru, account fixer, order placer, and question answering to all of our wonderful JCDC family!
Hilliary is married to her husband, Trey. They have one son, Archer and a Jack Russel Terrier mix, Ellie. They live on a 65 acre farm in Pittsylvania County.
