The Test Valley School of Dance was founded in 2013 by Principal Hannah Harrison. The School, based in Romsey, Hampshire, provides dance classes in RAD ballet, ISTD Tap and ISTD Modern & Jazz 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 Contemporary and AcroDance. The school also runs Zumba & adult ballet classes for adults. All classes are taught by experienced and qualified teachers, all of whom hold a current enhanced DBS Certificate.
Since leaving the internationally acclaimed Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Miss Hannah taught for numerous dance schools before deciding to open the Test Valley School of Dance. 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, safe and professional environment. "My foremost passion in life is DANCE; to learn, watch, train and perform. I am considerably fortunate to have been taught by some amazing teachers, both during my school days and also in recent years and those professionals continue to inspire me to deliver my classes at the highest possible standard. 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 own students and ignite a passion for dance which will remain with them as a source of comfort and celebration forever.” Miss Hannah qualified from the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) with a DipHE in Dance Education. She is also a registered teacher and full current member of the RAD (RAD RTS). Hannah is also an Affiliate Member of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD), Acrobatic Arts Certified (AAC1), a registered teacher with iD-Dance, holds a Dip. in Fitness Training and Sports Therapy and is a licensed Zumba, Zumba Kids Instructor.
