Throwback to just before the end of term when the incredible @keeleigh_choreography came in to guest teach. Our students always feel so inspired and motivated by this wonderful lady. Keeleigh has a show that is being presented on 3rd September. Our students @hollymcdonaghdance @mikey_colville @amaya.c.lucas @sydc.devonpomeroy and @molly.mardon are part of the cast. If you would like tickets please get in touch and I will give your names directly to Keeleigh.

In the New Year this kid thought he might not actually want to compete after all…. Thank god I talked you round @dara__gleeson Ey??? 2 comps down. 2 gold medals and a national title with this number 🏆 Never doubted you for a second Dara! The reaction from your team mates when your name is announced speaks volumes about you, not only as a dancer but as a person. The most likeable, hard working lad who deserves every inch of success!!! Honoured to have you on our team 💛

Considering we were contemplating whether or not to enter this kid into a novice section as she’d technically never competed before…..

National Contemporary Champion 🏆
National Song and Dance Champion 🏆
National senior trio Champion 🏆alongside the amazing @dancerdominika_x @lilyjacksonnn.x
National jazz runner up 🥈

Think it’s safe to say @hollymcdonaghdance we did the right thing. You have a gift Hol! How you’ve not been snapped up and utilised as a competitive dancer before now is beyond me! You were born to dance! 💛 you kiddo! Thank you for always representing my school to the best of your ability!

This little lady is LONG overdue an appreciation post. @nina.s_4 is by no means “quiet”, (in fact I hear she’s a right chatterbox in school) 🤣 however, she has been quietly working for some time now and it’s the quiet ones you have to watch! She only just made the cut for nationals 2 months ago, and after her final rehearsal before the grand final on Friday I sent her this message…. “One to watch you girl! Trust me! You’re the dark horse in this one. You’ve improved so much. Quietly been working hard and you’re going to go in there and kick up a storm!” Well Nina, you did just that!!! Hard work pays off! Your SYWTD runner up national jazz champion of GB! PROUD!!!! Couldn’t have been more deserved! ⭐️

I’m going to try and get to the end of this post without getting emosh….. Tomorrow is @_cameronboulter_ ‘s final class at HIPA. I cannot even begin to tell you how proud I am of you. You and your family have been the most wonderful addition to our HIPA team. We’ve been through it all together. I began teaching this little boy aged 12 at Sylvia Young, I then began working with him 1-2-1, his sheer grit and determination meant his progress just rocketed 🚀 AND THEN was lucky enough for him to join our HIPA elite team! He has worked his socks off and is onto a new chapter of his life at @lainetheatreart. I’ve never heard a single person have a wrong word to say about this kid. Everyone loves Cameron. He is kind, supportive, hard working and a total team player who we all respect and adore. I am so proud to say that Cameron is my first EVER HIPA grad to fly the nest. I will be following you every step of the way and we will always be here for you. We are your home and you can always count on us to be there for you. Now I’m crying! 😭 go have a great life Cameron! You deserve the world 🌎 love you always Bethany and your HIPA family! 🥰 @hayleylouiseb77 thank you for being the most supportive parents. You’ve been dreamy! ...
