Hannah teaches dance across a range of professional and educational settings. She has been part of the Dance Faculty at Trinity Laban since 2013, lecturing in contemporary technique across a range of programmes. From 2018-21 Hannah was the contemporary dance tutor at ENB School, delivering contemporary technique, creative workshops and audition coaching for all three year groups. She produced choreographic work for second year students as part of the Winter Showcase (2018/9), directed contemporary classwork as part of a showcase filmed at The Roundhouse (2020), and supported the rehearsal direction of works by Jose Agudo and Didy Veldman.

Alongside teaching, Hannah has presented her own choreographic work as part of Resolution! Festival (The Place, London) and has extensive experience working with artists from other disciplines, most recently with visual artist, Emma Cousins. She has developed a keen interest in capturing movement (through film, drawing and text) collaborating with filmmakers and artists to gain new perspectives on the moving body and our relationship to wider contexts. Hannah has worked as Rehearsal Director on a number of short dance films including Michael Boucherie’s ‘OneShot’ (Trinity Laban), Lingjing Yin’s ‘Touch the Sound’ (YAMAHA) and Ron Arad’s ‘Curtain Call’ (The Roundhouse, London).
