Ruby is 16 years old and is going into her last year at Hamilton Girls High School. She has been dancing with Drury Lane Dance and Performance for 13 years. Throughout this time, Ruby has studied the styles Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet and Contemporary. She also completed her BAL Tap Solo Diploma in 2018.
Ruby has been nominated for NZAMD Scholarship Nationals in Hip Hop and Jazz for the past 3 years. In 2018 she placed 5th in the Hip Hop division which was a big achievement for her. Ruby has also been a member of the Intermediate Performance Group and Drury Lane Hip Hop crew for 3 years, which has 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 has really enjoyed student teaching a variety of styles over the past 4 years, and is now very excited to teach for the first time as she can share her love for dance with her students.
