Hazel Summerbell​

I started dancing at the age of 3 in my local dancing school in Derbyshire, UK. 

While I was young I wasn't very interested in dancing and did it alongside other things like swimming and Brownies! However around the age of 10 I got 'the bug' of dancing and decided I wanted to be a Ballerina! 

As I got older I realized I didn't actually want to be a Ballerina, but that I did want Dancing to be my full time career and so I worked hard at dance classes all through school learning Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz & Lyrical and upon leaving school went to a full time Performing Arts course at Midlands Academy of Dance & Drama in Nottingham. This was a highly intense course with singing, dancing and acting all day , we had some great experiences and opportunities and also some great teachers. I learnt a lot there and also took my teaching exams in ISTD and IDTA Ballet in which I received great marks and was something I was very proud to achieve.

After college I had a variety of different dancing jobs learning about different types of performance, before I finally ended up getting a permanent job at Warner Leisure Hotels as an Entertainments Team member, performing in our highly popular and fun Cabaret Shows. Here I stayed for 5 years and progressed to Assistant Entertainments Manager I job which I loved and gained a great deal of experience in producing shows as  well as performing in them!

My sister Jennie, also a dance teacher, and her partner Phil Lyons a vocalist were also with me at the Hotel, and from there we decided to take the scary step of forming our own show and touring around Malta, a country we had never even visited! We had a wonderful year performing to audiences at hotels, weddings and feasts, and I stayed on in this fantastic country.

Here in Malta, I have produced and choreographed the successful show 'Spectaculesque' which entertains audiences every week, and have also taught Children's and Adult classes in dance and fitness at various locations around Malta. I still perform onstage regularly in as our Cabaret act has now become a Band specializing in Vintage Big Band songs!

I  am very excited to be starting this Dance school and  I hope that it will become part of the community, bringing dancers of all ages together with something they will enjoy and benefit from.
