Welcome to The Hague Institution of Performing Arts

About Bethany Hague

Bethany Hague is a performing arts instructor who has a passion for nurturing young talent and aspiring professionals.

Having left her home in Yorkshire at 13 years old to attend the Sylvia Young Theatre School and London Studio Centre thereafter, Principal Bethany has worked extensively in theatre, TV, film and radio around the world. 

Bethany now teaches at The Sylvia Young Theatre School and Performers College as well as guest teaching at an array of prestigious schools including Pineapple Studios. 

HIPA is exclusively a specialised elite training academy specifically tailored for students who intend on pursuing performing arts as a career. We have two branches. One in Essex and one in London. The majority of our students have west end and proffesional experience however it is not essential upon application for our programme.

We are not a traditional dance school. All of our students are currently either at full time stage schools or attached to other dance schools. Our students attend HIPA part time, therefore if you’re part of a dance school…. no problem! We are here to enhance your training. Our competition team is invite only and completely optional. You do not have to compete for team HIPA in order to participate in the HIPA programmes.

HIPA students progress and places are monitored on a half termly basis. We aim to bring our students the highest quality of tutors with west end credentials and experience.

Helen Alderson

My daughter first began lessons with Bethany at The Sylvia Young Theatre School. She is an amazing teacher who inspires every child she teaches. My daughter also had 1-1 lessons which were fantastic & loved every one she attended. My daughter is now 19 and still has a wonderful relationship with Bethany.

I would recommend Bethany to anyone who either wants to dance for fun or wants to further their career in the arts.


Macey Eddy. Former student

Bethany is a beautiful dancer and an infectiously joyous teacher. One of the most inspirational teacher’s I have ever had. She has wisdom, grace, and great dedication to dance and to her students. She is a rare gem and a wonderful gift to the dance community. I can't recommend her enough.

Ella Tweed. Laine Theatre Arts

I have had the pleasure of Bethany teaching me tap and jazz since the age of 12 years old. She not only taught me to dance from my heart. She also gave me the confidence to realise that with hard work I can live my dreams and aspirations.

Aimee Pomeroy

The progress my daughter has made in a short space of time since joining HIPA Essex has been more than incredible. Bethany and the other dance teachers are the best there is, not a moment is wasted time. They’re full of encouragement and inspire my daughter to new levels! We’re so happy to be part of HIPA elites and would highly recommend Bethany to anyone at any stage of dancing!
