Eliza Hart

Creative Arts Award



Young Eliza Hart is 17 years old and is a student at Addict Dance Academy in Leicester studying a BTEC Level 3 in Extended Dance. Currently in her second year of the course and have lived in Leicester for the last 18 months since moving from the North West at aged 16 to pursue a goal of becoming a first class dancer.

JHMT's Support

Eliza is completely and totally dedicated to dance. Study is combined with a part time casual cleaning job (cleaning the dance studios) as this covers the costs of extra evening classes at the academy.

Most recent accomplishments include been selected from the dance group at Addict to represent a new community dance initiative called 'Exhibit' set up by one of her tutors. The workshops/classes are held in Nottingham. This Also includes travelling to London to attend workshops of celebrity/West End dancers.

This 100% dedication and sacrifice comes a price both in terms of hours and hours of practise and travelling across the UK for dance workshops.

Eliza said: ' My tutors have said to me that 'I project energy within my work' and that I have a 'strong motivational role within my tutor group'. I hope that my enthusiasm and joy to be dancing does motivate and engage others. Hopefully this will develop and I can encourage others to pursue their ambitions.

'It would help immensely if I were to get an Inspire Award because I would be able to commit to more events. Last year I asked for money instead of birthday gifts and that helped for a time. If I could attend more external workshops/performances I feel that my experience would be broadened - I still have so much to learn! I would like to take every opportunity that comes my way and fulfill my potential
