Meet The Teacher - Ciara Hodgkiss - Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK

Name: Ciara Hodgkiss from Hitchin Hertfordshire.

Dance I Offer: Popdance Parties, Workshops, Kids Camps. I am also into fitness and have previously taught Popdance Fit.

What got me into dance: I started dancing at the age of 6 at Dance Steps Academy in Letchworth where I did exams in ISTD Tap and Modern.

I performed in many shows with this school and got my passion for dance.

I then went onto Hitchin College to get my Diploma in dance. From here I decided I wanted to be a dance teacher and attended Penny Meekings the dance college where I received my DDI and DDE in Tap and Modern.

Why Popdance?: I was looking for extra work and came across Popdance on the internet. I like to choreograph and so this was a great way to earn some extra money to get paid to choreograph for the website.

I also like all the recourses and support you get with Popdance. It has allowed me to run my own camps and classes in Schools.

Year ahead: I am starting up my Popdance Kids clubs again as unfortunately I lost a lot of work due do covid. I would also like to run more parties in the year ahead.
