Earlier this week we received a very excited phone call from former student, Hollie-Ann Lowe to tell us that she had successfully auditioned for Flashdance UK tour. She has been awarded the part of Gloria but will be understudy to Joanne Clifton from Strictly Come Dancing who is starring in the role of Alex. Hollie has only just graduated from the Urdang Academy in London so this is a huge achievement.
Hollie has worked so incredibly hard to be the best she can be and we have always admired her grit and steely determination. As teachers, Hazel and I are always looking at the bigger picture. Winning championships/competitions etc is not the be all and end all. We aim to train our students to a high standard so that they are able to pursue their dreams once they fly the Hazel Bell School of Dance nest. We can't wait to watch you perform in the show of your dreams Hollie. You are amazing.
