Heather Starsong grew up in New England and graduated summa cum laude from Boston University in 1957 with a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature.
She has been a dancer since childhood, especially fascinated with the connections between healing, art, and spirit. She has explored and taught many forms: creative dance, liturgical dance, dance therapy, yoga, ceremonial dance, Rolfing® and Rolf Movement®, Continuum, and most recently Argentine Tango.
Although her career has been focused on body language, she has loved and told stories all her life. In 2007 she began to write her stories. Leaves in Her Hair was published in 2009, Never Again in 2015, The Purest Gold in 2017, Song of Eliria in 2019, and Leaf Shadows and Sunshine in 2022.
She is presently semi-retired from a long career of teaching dance and yoga and practicing Rolfing. She lives in Boulder, Colorado, and enjoys writing, dancing, hiking in the high country, and spending time with her grandchildren.
