Hi, I’m Hannah and I am lucky enough to teach most of the classes here at Stardust!
I love to teach all ages and do my best to ensure that every student feels welcome and included in all my classes. It gives me great pleasure to welcome new students into our dance family and watch as their confidence grows and they make new friends. I have had many pre-school students come to their 1st class nervous and clinging to parents, however, it gives me immense pleasure to see them run into class the next week with a big smile on their face! I love how much dance classes can improve a child's confidence which not only helps with our classes but also when they start school.
I have danced from a young age and gained a diploma in Musical theatre in Northumberland before moving to Cambridge to train as a professional dancer at Cambridge Performing Arts. I then went onto become a dance teacher with the Imperial Society of teachers of dancing (ISTD) studying Ballet, Tap and Modern Theatre Jazz. My love of dance and passion to be the best teacher I can has also lead me to become a cheerleading coach with UKCA and an Acro Gymnastics teacher with Acrobatic arts.
I started Stardust Dance Academy in 2010 with one Saturday class and I feel very privileged that I still teach some of my very 1st students now! I believe that dancing is something that everyone should be able to enjoy and hope to inspire lots of children and adults with my love of dance for many years to come.
