Dance Training, Performing Arts & Swing Dancing

Hayley with Debbie, Paul & Ken of The Jive Aces

 I have been dancing since I was 8 years old and singing since I was 6. In 2006 at Hitchin's Rhythm's of the world festival I bent Ken's (The Jive Aces' Double Bass Player) arm about learning to play and he offered to lend me a bass to learn to play with. By that October I had a Bass Teacher and was quickly learning to play, then by the February of 2007 I had my very own swing band who were all in my year at school and we were The Jive-Ettz!
   

 Now in my 20's I am a qualified dance teacher in Tap, Ballet, Modern jazz and street dance and teach singing too for a local dance school during the evenings and weekends, alongside this I work for Royston Liesure centre as a fitness instructor.
 
I also taught the childrens classes in 2009 & 2010 at The Twinwood Festival.

  I have been dancing Lindy Hop with my mum and step-dad since I was 8 and have attended many weekenders and workshops with the best teachers & choreographers from all over the world. I have also competed in many talent contests, some in dance and some as a musician, in doing so I have won cash prizes and also recording studio time.

I have always been involved in performing arts in different ways. I have been involved in every school play since nursery including lead roles in many of them. I have performed in Stevenage's Gordon Craig theatre on many occasions with the Litton Players and with stage coach.
 
I have performed with C.A.D.S (corvus, amateur drama society) many times in Royston during panto season.

Hayley in Stage Right Performance

I trained at a small theatre school for 2 years, at theatre train for a year and at stagecoach for 7 years.

I have my bronze and silver medals in Drama for the L.A.M.D.A board. and I have medals from trinity in performing arts which I did whilst at stagecoach.


 
I took dance lessons & dance exam grades with Stage Right Studios in Royston since I was 8 and was a member of their competition troupe and competed in many competitions doing group work and solo's especially in Tap! I was always a part of the Stage Right annual show and as I was in so many classes that meant lots of routines in the show with lots of extremely quick changes.

As a Singer & Bass player  I have also performed in many venues all over England Europe & America with the Jive Aces which was an amazing few years of my life!
