Faculty Feature: Hannah
Learn more about Teacher Hannah, an integral part of our #TBATeam and today's #FacultyFeature!
Since joining TBA in August 2020, Hannah has completed her RAD Teacher Certification and most recently completed her Advanced Foundation exam with us. Find out more about her favorite dance memories and how she has evolved as a young teacher below!
How and when did you start dancing?
I started dancing at the age of 5. I only started because of my close friend – she joined the ballet studio beside our childcare centre and I pestered my mom to sign me up too!
What do you enjoy most about dance?
Dancing allows me to put everything aside for a short period of time. I love to be in the moment, listening to the music and understanding the way my body is moving and just focusing on myself.
What made you decide to pursue a career in dance?
When I started dancing, I was inspired by the teachers who taught me and wanted to become like them.
What is your favorite ballet step and why?
I really enjoy doing allegros (jumps)! Although it’s really tiring, allegros make me feel like I’m flying.
What is your favorite dance memory?
I think I have many favourites... they are all performance memories and rehearsal times. I really enjoy the bond and time I spend with fellow dancers where everyone is working towards the same goal and radiating that same passion.
Other than those, my favourite memory would be hitting a quadruple pirouette! 😛
