The Test Valley School of Dance was founded in 2013 by Principal Hannah Harrison. The School, based in Romsey, Hampshire, specialises in classical ballet and RAD syllabus ballet for children (aged 3+) and adults; from total beginners to the more advanced.
The school aims to create happy and healthy all-round dancers and as such also provides training in Tap & Modern, Jazz and AcroDance. The school also runs Zumba & adult ballet classes for adults.
Since leaving the internationally acclaimed Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Miss Hannah has taught for numerous dance schools. She employs an energetic, enthusiastic approach to teaching, ensuring each pupil receives individual attention and that all students benefit from absorbing essential dance technique in a fun, stimulating and professional environment.
“My foremost passion in life is DANCE; to learn, watch, train and perform. I am very rarely spotted standing still! I am considerably fortunate to have been taught by some amazing teachers, both during my school days and also in recent years, and those people continue to be an inspiration to me as I embark on this exciting journey with my own dance school. Dance, for me is not only a means of expression, it’s part of me, without it I do not feel complete and my ambition at the Test Valley School of Dance is to inspire my students and ignite a passion for dance which will remain with them as a source of comfort and celebration forever”
