We are very excited to introduce Ashleigh Burt who will be taking the new Havelock North classes on Tuesdays. Here’s a little bit about her:
Between both the Hagley Theatre Company and the University of Canterbury, Ashleigh qualified with a Bachelor of Performing Arts and since graduating has been actively involved in the industry as a freelance performer.
After working in the industry for a couple of years Ashleigh returned to school and graduated from the Design and Arts College, Christchurch this time with a diploma in Make Up Design and Production. Since qualifying she has added professional freelance Make Up Artist to her list of job titles.
From 2012 through to 2015 Ashleigh taught Hip Hop, Jazz and Contemporary style dance in Hawkes Bay for DanceLife Studios Ltd. In this role she developed a genuine passion for engaging and inspiring her students to correctly fuel passions and drive learning.
Ashleigh is currently stage managing for the Hawkes Bay Shakespeare festival’s play ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. She has recently signed with the Drama Workshop as an entertainer/actor and is very much looking forward to joining the Play-On team as a new Drama Tutor.
There are still a couple of places left in next week’s holiday program. It’s a great way to get those drama muscles working again and to try drama and see if it’s for you!
