Alexandra Hart

Alex graduated from the Urdang Academy in 2016 with a BA Hons Degree in Professional Dance and Musical Theatre. Her passion for performing arts began from the age of 3 and has been a part of her life ever since. Before she was 18 she participated in several pantomimes, youth ballets, singing competitions, dance festivals and gained a place at the prestigious Royal Ballet School Mid Associates.

Alex has also performed in the London 2012 Closing Ceremony, has done some backing singing for the X factor live finals and has also been a lead vocalist and host for a hotel in Spain.

Alex has a positive approach to teaching and feels that all her previous experience can aid students in reaching their full potential.
