Jaymee Brearley

Tutor

Crazy & fun. A girl who is able to be extroverted, perform in front of people & be a home body who binges Netflix whenever she can - seems to be a good balance! Catch her listening to only Musical Theatre music and trying to catch up on the latest pop music trends to understand the “normal people”.

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.

Josh Bedford

Tutor

Avid watcher of any and all television shows - name any show and he can give you a super long chat about it! Cannot live without song and dance and can be seen singing and dancing around at any given moment. He loves music and can jam to anything (besides rap)! He is a true kiddie at heart and would never turn down a nostalgic watch of anything ‘childhood’...Hannah Montana, anyone?!

Jack Hagan

Tutor

Pform student since 2009, loves socialising, blasting loud music, and travel. Thanks to hard lessons from mum about colour coordination growing up, fashion has always been on point. Passionate about dance since the age of two, sadly there are videos of toddler Jack in his nappies to prove it. Biggest achievement is placing sixth in the world at the World HipHop Championships in the MegaCrew division. In 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 some sarcasm, banter and a good dance battle.

Jess Hebditch

Tutor

JDNZ Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop

Outgoing and vibrant with a warm personality, Jess loves keeping physically active through dancing, pilates, yoga, gyming and swimming. Her friends are constantly telling her off for her dancing and off-key singing in public. Luckily her appalling singing is acceptable at the concerts and music festivals she enjoys going to. Infected with the travel bug, she is itching to get to Europe and South East Asia. She loves beach walks with her family, including her little white dog Millie! But if Jess does get a rainy day off you’ll find her snuggled up in bed with a block of Whitakers Creamy Milk, watching the Grey’s Anatomy series for the 3rd time.
