Biography

Hannah trained at The Urdang Academy, Covent Garden and went on to work with the ballet companies of the Stadttheater Bremerhaven and Theater Vorpommern Greifswald. She performed on the Jedermann stage at the Salzburg Festival with the New English Orchestra and toured Spain and England, dancing in new neoclassical and contemporary works. She then worked as a freelance dancer with various choreographers including Milo Miles and Celia Grannum.

Hannah started her teaching career with floor barre and then continued to teach all levels of ballet. She specialises in teaching beginners of all ages and is passionate about building correct, safe technique from day one. She enjoys seeing what students gain from ballet which goes beyond the steps, such as learning a new skill, being part of a community and building confidence as well as improved posture, fitness and well being. Hannah’s classes are very popular and she is known for her ‘eagle eye’ and no nonsense approach.

Having been through two foot surgeries herself, Hannah has a special interest in rehabilitation from injury. She has practised Pilates and floor barre herself for many years and is a qualified Progressing Ballet Technique teacher as well as massage therapist.

Classes description

Beginner’s Ballet

Did you do ballet as a child? Had a break for 20 years? Never done ballet but always fancied having a go? Do you want to improve posture, tone up and have fun at the same time? Then this class is for you! This is a very basic class focussing on correct placement of the body, correct technique and safe alignment. It aims to teach the foundation of ballet technique so that students can progress safely to the next level. The class comprises a slow barre which remains the same for a few weeks to enable students to concentrate on muscles and technique, rather than getting lost trying to pick up new combinations every class. The class continues in the centre with exercises such as port de bras, adagio, preparation for pirouettes and simple jumps. Every student gets personal corrections to enable them to work correctly, safely and progress, regardless of past experience. First build the car, then learn to drive it! Wear something comfortable that you can move in. Socks are fine to start with.

Improver Ballet

Have you done Beginners Class for over a year but are feeling lost in other ‘elementary’ classes? Did you do ballet to elementary/intermediate level as a child or had a long break? Then this class is the one for you. This improvers’ class aims to bridge the gap between Beginners and normal Elementary classes. The class is more complicated than beginners with the emphasis on picking up more difficult sequences and learning travelling combinations from the corner. There is an opportunity to ‘break down’ steps and to make requests. You will also learn class etiquette such as how to space yourself and when to join in when dancing across the room in groups. This is not a class for absolute beginners. Wear ballet shoes.
