Grace Goulter

Master Tutor Franchisee - Mt Eden

Diploma in On Screen Acting, Diploma in Screenwriting and Directing

Small-town girl raised on motorbikes, go-karts and of course the odd dance, drama and music lesson! Her passion for the Arts resulted in a one-way flight to Auckland- she's never looked back. Loves hip-hop, hot yoga, the colour green and secretly wishes she had an identical twin. If she's not sipping coffee, smashing her drum kit or twinkling the ivories, Grace will be writing scripts, taking photos or adventuring outdoors.

Rose Stretton

Tutor

Pform.nz student since 2003! Secretly a ginormous history nerd and sometimes prefers studying Shakespeare than performing it! Literally the biggest Cinderella fan in the entire world. Believes firmly that Beyoncé is the reason for existence. Unhealthily obsessed with coffee (ask anyone at the Pform.nz shows) and would never turn down a High School Musical marathon.

Neala Cullen

Tutor

Loves adventuring and exploring, but nothing can beat movies inside on a rainy day. Her favourite things include dancing, makeup, Japanese food, TV, films and any form of potatoes (especially roast potatoes). As a child she would perform full musicals for all her soft toys and force her 4 older siblings to watch her dance routines. You will most likely find her curled up on the couch watching a movie, or or in the gym burning off some energy!

Hannah Lamberton

Tutor

Pform.nz dance and drama student for around 8 years! Pform.nz is a part of her life and she doesn't know who she would be without it. Among the first Junior Leaders and loves to mention that regularly at staff PD's. Dance and Drama - and particularly Musical Theatre - are the most important things in her life, that - and food. Weirdly great at remembering lyrics and loves to sing, loudly, to any and every song that comes on. Loud, excitable and just a little bit weird, she enjoys Pform.nz classes above all else.

Jack Hagan

Tutor

Pform student since 2009! Loves socialising, blasting loud music, and travelling. Thanks to hard lessons from Mum about colour coordination, fashion has always been on-point. Passionate about dance since the age of two...sadly there are videos of Jack in his nappies to prove it. Placed sixth in the world at Hip Hop Internationals. Between competing and training, you’ll find him sleeping through five alarms, binge watching Game Of Thrones and eating more chocolate than he should. Thanks to his time as a Pform.nz Junior Leader, he has an unhealthy obsession with coffee. Jack is always ready for sarcasm, banter and a good dance battle.

Loves all things dance, drama and musical theatre, so she can mostly be found belting out renditions of her favorite Broadway shows in the bathroom or goofing off on any dance floor she can find!) She finds so much joy from helping kids find the same love for performing that she grew up with.
