JUDY HAMLET

I’m Judy Hamlet. I took my very first ballet class at the age of 3 and from there I progressed through all the Cecchetti grade examinations under the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), until I’d finished my A Levels.

I then began a 3 year, full-time training course at The London College of Dance and Drama where I studied ballet, modern, tap, classical Greek, jazz, contemporary, streetdance, ballroom and national dance to advanced level. Within my dance Diploma I gained associate teaching qualifications in ballet, modern theatre and classical Greek dance.

Since leaving college I have performed in shows and theatres in and around London and I have taught children from the age of 3-18 years for over 20 years during which time I have successfully entered hundreds of candidates for ballet examinations every year with a 100% pass rate.

Alongside running my own dance school I teach ballet at Walthamstow Hall Junior School in Sevenoaks where the girls are entered for ballet exams on an annual basis.

VICKY LONGLEY

My name is Vicky and I trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London – from the age of 12 to 19.

Dancing is my passion and I have been training since the age of five - starting with the royal ballet. I am trained in all styles, including Latin and Ballroom (winning British Champion when I was 15) but street dance is my favourite, so I am very happy to be teaching for Judy. I love working with the kids and always try to make sure the lessons are fun.

Whilst still at school I worked in many West End theatres, playing my first professional role in ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ at the Palladium at the age of 13.

I played Emma Norton in the number one children’s show for Nickelodeon; ‘Genie in the House’ for 5 years and I was the sole choreographer for all three series. I also starred in a BBC 3 sitcom called White Van Man.

I love teaching Street Dance, Jazz and Contemporary styles of dance.
