Hype Dance is my family and my home. Anna and the team provide absolutely fantastic pre-vocational training in an environment which is positive, supportive and inclusive. The quality of training for everyone is phenomenal and all of the teachers encourage creativity and hard work. The memories I have as a child at Hype I will cherish forever, and am absolutely privileged and honoured to become a patron.
All I can say, from the bottom of my heart, is thank you Anna – I owe you so much.
