Hayley James A.I.D.T.A.
Hayley has been dancing from a young age, and over time has established herself as an inspirational dancer and teacher. Whilst training in theatre schools she was keen to expand her knowledge in different dance disciplines and studied at “Pattisons Theatre Arts College” to gain the necessary formal qualifications in dance. Hayley became an accomplished performer in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Freestyle, Ballroom, LAMDA Speech & Drama and Singing. These were showcased in her numerous performances abroad in Japan, Hong Kong, Greece, Disneyland Paris and Disney World America.
Hayley's crowning glory was opening her own dance school in 2000, where she specialised in the dance discipline of freestyle. Today she teaches a variety of different styles, including street, ballet, tap, acrobatics and musical theatre across Rugby..
Impact Dance School has been given many amazing opportunities to dance in professional locations. Hayley takes groups of dancers to perform on stages both in the UK and abroad, such as The Royal Albert Hall, Sadler's Wells, Her Majesty's Theatre, Disneyland Paris, Fuerteventura, London O2 and DisneyWorld, Florida.
Hayley has an infectious passion for dance and positively encourages all who attend the classes in her school . Her mantra of ‘Enjoy The Dance' is something she delivers in every dance style. Impact Dance is renowned for its friendly and welcoming environment where all, both young and old, are made to feel welcome and to just 'Enjoy The Dance'.
Hayley is keen to pass on her talent and always has a succession of highly motivated student teachers working alongside her in a number of classes. These dancers are coached and directed in accordance with the I.D.T.A. syllabus and are a great inspiration to the children who attend the classes.
