Hayley Adams

Dance Artist and Educator


The Post-Graduate Certificate: Dance in Community was a challenging yet widely insightful year of study. I refer to this year as the ‘springboard’ into my varied career as a Dance Artist. The high quality three-tiered approach for training in performance, choreography and teaching is absolutely still relevant to my work today.

After graduating she worked as a dance artist and educator for Dance South Gloucestershire, the Youth Dance Academy (CAT) at Swindon Dance, Bristol University and many more agencies and schools in the south west UK region.

Her teaching work takes her to international dance laboratories, schools and communities.
