Based in Canterbury Genre Dance

Hannah Wakelin


I am a fifteen year old from Ashburton, New Zealand. I have been dancing and performing since I was three.

I have performed in the Mid-Canterburys Childrens Theatre for many years, in prominent singing, dancing and acting roles. I had the opportunity to be an elf at Barrington Mall, helping out Santa with children and handing out lollies. We also went to the Ronald McDonald house and sang Christmas Carols to everyone there, and tried to make their Christmas merry. I have sang at numerous weddings and events, including 'Christmas in the Park."

In 2014 I was accepted into the National team representing New Zealand at the World Championships of Performing Arts. While there I received a Silver medal and our team also received the Bronze medal for our group performance in the Chorus competition. I was also awarded an industry award, which the judges gave to the people they believed had "it," and were right for the industry.

All of these experiences have molded me into the person and dancer I am today.
