Additional information and experience - Gemma H.

Miss Gemma's love for dance started at an early age. She started attending regular dance classes from the age of 2 and before long was taking classes 5 nights a week and all day Saturdays. She became an assistant teacher at 14 and gained her first teaching qualification aged 16yrs.

She became fully qualified at 18 whilst she was studying for her A-levels. She continued to further her dance teaching qualifications and studied at Midlands Academy of Dance and Drama gaining qualifications with the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) alongside completing her degree in 'Sports Studies and Physical Education' at the University of Worcester. During her time at university Miss Gemma was the founder and Chairperson of the 'Dance Society'

for three years. Throughout her degree it became more apparent that her true passion was to teach and she specifically enjoyed combining the knowledge of her degree into her dance teaching practice.

After opening the Academy and teaching for several years Miss Gemma continued her studies with the Royal Academy of Dance and gained RAD RTS (Registered Teachers Status). Miss Gemma is a fully qualified teacher with the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance), I. D. T. A (International dance Teachers Association) and is able to enter students for exams in all dance genres offered at the Academy. The Academy has a 100% pass rate and Miss Gemma also trains students/teachers for professional level teaching examinations with fantastic results. She is also a teaching member of many other dance organisations including the N. A. T. D (National Association of Teachers of Dancing) and I. S. T. D (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing). Gemma is also qualified to enter students for examinations with these associations.

Throughout her dance life Miss Gemma has performed in many shows, festivals and competitions. She has enjoyed regular appearances at Malvern Theatres including roles in 'There's No Business Like Show Business', 'Memory Lane', 'Snow White' and many more. She has also performed lead dance roles at the 'Swan Theatre', 'Roses Theatre' and 'Hippodrome' in pantomimes including 'Dick Whittington', 'Cinderella' and 'Peter Pan'. After taking a break from competing whilst at university, Gemma still had the desire to perform. More recently she has competed at the Nationals (Telford, 2013), Southern Class (Eastborne, 2014), Bring it On (Paris, 2015), Spring Sensation (Worcester, 2016). She also regularly appeared on the pitch at Sixways performing with her 'Cheer Elite' team who provided pre-match and half time entertainment for Worcester Warriors Matches. Miss Gemma also enjoys performing in the Magical Disneyland Parade in Paris with her students annually and she performed in Los Angeles in 2017 with her senior students on the Main Stage in Disneyland California.

Miss Gemma's experience of teaching is wide ranging, she has taught BTEC Level 2 and 3 at Hanley Castle High School, The Chase School, Pershore High School and John Masefield High School. She has also taught in many educational establishments including primary, middle and secondary schools, colleges and local universities. Miss Gemma has also worked with a wide range of young people within the community from teaching after school clubs to providing tuition at local groups which include children and adults with special needs and disabilities.

In 2010 Miss Gemma opened the 'Dance in Motion Academy' allowing her to provide professional facilities for all of her students. Since this time Miss Gemma she has trained many students to complete examinations, perform in shows and compete in National and International competitions. More recently she is very privileged to have trained students to represent 'TEAM ENGLAND' in Vienna at the ECU Championships. In 2017/2018 Miss Gemma was very honoured to have been selected as the Head Dance Technique Coach for Team England Pom who competed at the ICU championships in Florida.

Miss Gemma is very thankful to all who have helped her achieve her dreams including her family, teachers, students and parents. She wants every student to enjoy dancing and will strive to provide a safe, friendly and professional environment for all.

Miss Gemma believes every student is a true star!
