I have been attending Hammond Academy for almost 9 years. I joined while the Academy were rehearsing for its second show. Since then I have taken part many events such as numerous theatrical shows and smaller events such as fetes and carnivals, even taking exams every year in Modern, Tap, Street and Freestyle. It just goes to show the amount of opportunities that are possible. As well as this, I have seen my confidence grow a lot over the 9 years. When I arrived I was a quiet, timid 8 year old. I think this is down to the performing involved and the friendly atmosphere within the school. With the hard work and support given to me, my dancing and co-ordination has improved as well, also allowing me to achieve the best exam results possible.
