Harriet began dancing at the age of 5. Throughout her childhood she took examinations in Disco Freestyle, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Ballroom, Latin American and Sequence with the ISTD and competed in many competitions across the Country. Including National Finals held at Blackpool Tower Ballroom. Her love of dance led her to include it in her Academic Studies. She studied Dance as one of her A Level subjects and Performance Studies at AS Level at Hills Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge.
At the age of 17 Harriet began teaching Disco Freestyle, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Ballroom and Latin American at Deville Dance in Haverhill and Adult Ballroom and Latin American Classes for West Suffolk College.
In September 2006 Harriet opened 3 Sets of classes for Adults and Children in the Cambridgeshire/Hertfordshire Area. She is now successfully running Hot Steps Dance Academy in Steeple Morden, Papworth Everard and Haverhill. Harriet regularly attends ISTD Disco Freestyle and Ballroom and Latin Competitions with her pupils across the Country as well as holding examination sessions twice a year for pupils to take their medals with the ISTD.
After passing all of her Associate teaching qualifications with the ISTD, Harriet recently took her Licentiate Ballroom examination and successfully passed with flying colours.
She is a very enthusiastic teacher who loves her classes! And is always working hard to maintain a successful, fun and friendly atmosphere at Hot Steps Dance Academy.
