Colleen Maire has been dancing for 38 years, the last 21 of them teaching at Batataille Academie of the Danse where she is an instructor of ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, acrobatics and modern classes. Colleen received her BFA in Dance from Barat College in 1990. She grew up at Bonnie Lindolm School of Dance and has made dance appearances with Hubbard Street and Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
Colleen has refined her technique alongside many acclaimed dancers including: Rory Foster of the ABT, Eileen Cropley of Paul Taylor, Randy Ducan, Joel Hall, Greg Begley, Terell Paulk and Lane Alexander. Additionally, Colleen is a member of Chicago National Association of Dance Masters(CNADM) and has won many awards for her choreography. To Colleen, the best part of dancing is performing and making an audience smile. She enjoys watching the “lightbulb” go on when a child truly understands the love and discipline of dance. When she isn’t dancing, Colleen enjoys family time with her husband, Dean, their daughters, Bridget and Jaqui. Bridget loves to ride and compete on horseback and Jaqui is one of Bataille’s very own dancers.
