RUBY HAMMOND

Currently Teaching:

NZAMD Jazz & Hip Hop

Ruby is 17 years old and has just graduated from high school in 2020. She is now studying full-time at Wintec to become an Occupational Therapist. Ruby has been dancing with Drury Lane Dance and Performance for 14 years and throughout this time, has studied the styles Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet, and Contemporary. She also completed her BAL Tap Solo Diploma in 2018 and NZAMD Hip Hop Solo Diploma in 2020. 

Ruby has been nominated for NZAMD Scholarship Nationals in Hip Hop and Jazz for the past 4 years. In 2018 she placed 5th in the Hip Hop division which was a big achievement for her. Ruby had also been a member of the Intermediate Performance Group for 4 years which brought her many opportunities to perform around the Waikato and compete at dance competitions around the North Island. She has also had the opportunity to perform with a group of dancers from Drury Lane at Coca Cola Christmas in the Park for the past two years which was an amazing experience.  

Ruby really enjoyed teaching her own classes for the first time last year and is now very excited to take on more to share her love for other styles of dance.
