RUBY HAMMOND

Currently Teaching:

NZAMD Jazz & Hip Hop

Ruby is 18 years old and is going into her second year of studying occupational therapy at Wintec. She absolutely loved her first year and can’t wait to continue on. Ruby has been dancing with Drury Lane Dance and Performance for 15 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 in previous years and 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 which was an experience she will never forget. 

Ruby has found a love for teaching over the past 2 years, and wants to continue sharing her passion for dance with her students for many years to come.
