Having previously owned - together with Dave Campbell – Dancenter Ballroom and Latin American Studio in Johannesburg, Beverley decided to branch out into the Freestyle world.
Beverley danced with her partner, Dave Campbell, from the age of 13 and reached the Professional British, International and World Cup Finals, as well as being undefeated South African Ballroom and Latin American Champions.
Following her successful Ballroom and Latin career, it was quite a step to take on Freestyle!
After advertising in the Pretoria East Rekord newspaper, the first class started with 21 pupils ranging from 4-and-a-half to 16 years of age. In no time the classes were split into age groups and the rest is history!
In 2013 we opened a second branch in Centurion which is growing from strength to strength.
In recent years a few of our former pupils have qualified in other dance styles which prompted us to introduce Hip Hop, Contemporary, Acrobatics and Dancefit into the studio.
We are very proud of our teachers who have grown up in our studio and are now sharing their expertise and experience with the next generation. We are equally proud of the external teachers that have joined The Beverley Hammond Dance School family.
It is wonderful to have fresh and new ideas, as we constantly work to provide the best opportunities for our pupils.
We have a variety of Wedding Packages for you to choose from. Our very experienced teachers can help make your opening dance extra special.
Hip Hop is one of the most popular and evolving styles of dance. Our syllabus, AIDT Urban Hip Hop, includes styles like Locking, Popping, New School, Lyrical, House, Stepping, B-Boy, waacking etc.
This syllabus is much more focused on the incorporation of acrobatics into dance, not only teaching single tricks but movement aswell. It is also suited for both dedicated, hardworking pupils aswell as those doing it for the enjoyment only.
Show Dance incorporates all styles of dance. It can be done solo, as a duo or in groups. Items are choreographed to music of your choice, and have to tell a story! There are many opportunities for International exposure in this style of dance.
Contemporary Dance is a compilation of, Modern, Ballet and Jazz, using techniques from each different style to Create movement instead of structuring it
