Team Angel

Due to popular demand we are creating a team of dancers to model our Dancewear, attend events and photoshoots instead of having just one Ambassador!!

We will be selecting dancers who interact with Angel Dancewear on social media (tags, comments, etc) and who are good role models. 

There is no end date to this search, we will continue to add members as and when throughout the year

Meet Team Angel


Ella


Hi Ella here, co-owner of Angel Dancewear.

I'm 12 years old and live in West Yorkshire. I have been dancing since I was 3 years old and haven't stopped since!! I enjoy all types of dance, drama and singing. Musical Theatre is probably my favourite style.  My other hobbies are playing the violin and keyboard. When I was little I used to do competitions but now I focus on performing in shows such as Bill Kenwright's  touring productions such as Jesus Christ Superstar and Joseph and the Amazing Techincolour Dreamcoat at theatres such as the Leeds Grand and Bradford Alhambra. I also perform in Panto every December. One of my favourite all time shows was performing at Disneyland Paris, which is a really magical place.

At Angel Dancewear one of my main roles is working on the website and computer programming. I also help choose the stock that we import to sell here in the UK. Going to events such as Move It and Can You Dance means I get to meet lots of amazing dancers and see them perform. 

I am looking forward to working with the new Team Angel this year and getting to know these talented dancers xx


  


Caitlin


I am a 15 year old dancer and the co-owner of Angel Dancewear.

I have lived in West Yorkshire my whole life and danced with a few local dance studios. I started dancing at the age of 7 and currently train at Stuart Stage School, Professional Ballet Experience and am a member of Vivid Dance Company in Halifax. Some of my past performances include the Nutcracker with Northern Ballet, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at both the Leeds Grand and the Bradford Alhambra, Giselle with English Youth Ballet, Disneyland Paris with Stuart Stage School and Panto for the last 5 years.
One of my favourite aspects of co-owning Angel Dancewear is all the amazing talented dancers I get to meet, both over Social Media and at events across the UK. This year we were lucky enough to tour the UK with Kalani Hilliker and her family and help organise the tour with them. The tour was over 9 days which visited Edinburgh and London and lots of places in between! At Move It in March I was invited to be a guest speaker at a business seminar with Miss Abby Lee Miller and to talk about different types of careers within the dance industry. 
I love to dance because you make lots of beautiful memories that last a lifetime. This year will be a chance for the Team to attend events and photo shoots together and most important...have fun!!



Becky

(Age 14, lives in Ireland)

I started my dancing career at the age of 3 years old. My favourite style of dance is musical theatre as I love incorporating singing and acting into my dancing. My other styles include lyrical, contemporary, hip hop and jazz.

I have performed in many stage productions in Ireland. These include musicals such as "The King and I" and Christmas pantomimes such as "Snow White", "Cinderella" and "Alice in Wonderland", in the Cork Opera House.

I am lucky to have received so many amazing opportunities through dance for example being on Team Angel. Recently, I had the opportunity to dance in a music video entitled 'Blow Your Mind' by Mackenzie Sol. It was such an amazing experience and I learned a lot about how much time and effort goes into making music videos . Another special experience I recently had was being able to assist Abby Lee Miller from the hit TV show "Dance Moms" on her European dance tour around the UK, Ireland, Norway and Gibraltar.

As well as dancing, I also have a huge passion for gymnastics. I am a member of the Ballincollig Gymnastics Club. I compete in Sports Acrobatics regularly and have been successful in regional and national competitions. 

Being on Team Angel means so much to me. It gives me the opportunity to meet and work with so many amazing people. The other girls on the team are so supportive and kind to one another and of course talented dancers.

Together we make a great team!

 


Emily

(Aged 15, lives in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.

 

At 2 ½ years old I started doing Ballroom and Latin, Modern and Classical dancing at Lee Green Dance Centre. Since starting I have won the IDTA Nationwide finals 7 times. I then also started to attend Stepping Out with Clare Walton. This strengthen my love of dance as I then started to learn many more different styles of dance such as Slow, Lyrical, street, commercial and many more... In March 2016, I attended Move It in London. Whilst there I was spotted to attended an invitation only lecture with Kimberly Wyatt. After doing the lecture I was given an unbelievable scholarship to go to Hollywood and train with some of the world's best choreographers. I was also given the opportunity to be a backing dancer in a music video for Lexi Smith, filming this in Universal Studios was one of the most amazing and memorable times of my dancing career so far! I was also spotted to go through to the auditions of UK Dance Elite where I got through to the semi-finals. I also do ballet at the Tiffany school of dance to help strengthen my dance ability. I am currently rehearsing for the role as a dancer for the Darlington Pantomime Aladdin.

People ask me all the time "which is your favourite style of dance?" my answer is always the same "All of them, I just love to dance!" Dance gives me the opportunity to express myself on the stage/dance floor and to make some amazing friends and wonderful memories. I also hope and dream that I can inspire at least one person to dance and make their dreams come true.

When I was given the Amazing news that I had been accepted as part of Team Angel I think I screamed for a good 30 mins! I was so excited to receive such a fabulous opportunity! Being part of Team Angel is so exciting as I get to work with some of the best, supportive dancers and with one Fab Angel family!


Georgia

Hi I'm Georgia and I am 14 years old.  I live in a beautiful little village in Co Durham.  I started dancing at 4 years old taking my first ballet class at The Tiffany School of Dance in Darlington & I am still there today doing my RAD Advanced Foundation!   I love ballet and am now training on pointe which is very challenging.  I was lucky enough to train as an Elmhurst Junior ballet Associate in Sunderland when I was 10/11 yr old in Sunderland and experienced boarding in Birmingham at the beautiful Elmhurst Ballet School. I thoroughly enjoyed Elmhurst but it made me realise I loved all styles of dance so much and did not want to just do ballet. 

From 5 years old I started dancing at Clare Walton's Stepping Out dance school very local to me, and my love of disco freestyle dancing started. I became a British Champion at only 7 years old and was an under 8 Champion winning many titles in England & Scotland. I have gone on to achieve Premier Champ status in freestyle which is the highest you can achieve in under 10s, under 12, and now under 14s. I have won the British Championships 3 times in each age section and one of my biggest achievements was becoming a Solo World Champion in under 12s which was amazing experience and achieved Slow Runner Up World Champion this year in under 14s.  I made myself, my teachers and my family very proud.  I have won and qualified for some of the best freestyle competitions there is in this country and I have loved my journey and have been very lucky to have been sponsored throughout my freestyle life by BX Designs and currently with Divarokz Designs which I am extremely grateful for. 

Last few years I started to branch out as I loved all styles of dance I was learning with Clare Walton and entered theatre competitions in Ireland Starpower & Newcastle and attended a Can You Dance touring convention by Matt Flint & Tom Shilcock, this excited me to do more and I was very lucky this year to be chosen as their Can You Dance Star where I danced solo at Newcastle alongside the amazing Tayluer Amos & Amelia Tyler.  It was here I was lucky enough to firstly meet photographer Paul from Centre Stage who I have worked with on many photo shoots & events since & I was introduced to Angel Dancewear by CYD and I have loved knowing the family ever since.  At CYD I was also scouted by Urdang London and offered a free scholarship place at their Summer School where I attended this August and loved the experience dancing at a top dance college in London. 

In March this year I attended the Moveit convention at the Excel in London and it was the best dance experience i have ever had seeing the dance world altogether at its best it was amazing.  I was lucky enough to get a place and dance on the freestyle stage and it was here I was scouted by UKDanceElite and a place in Regional Heats.  I went on to dance in the semi finals at the famous Sadlers Wells in London and achieved the dream of making the top 22 finalists from 1000s and perform at the Broadway Theatre in London to top industry dance professionals and won 3rd Place!!  It was the best dance achievement by far and something I'll always remember and treasure that I did and met other amazing dancers & professionals. 

After auditions this year, I successfully gained a place as a CAT student and in September I started on the Dance City, Centre for Advanced Training in Newcastle, a top advanced training centre in contemporary & ballet where I train 10 hours a week and I am thoroughly enjoying it. 

I was also very lucky to be spotted at NELive dance competition in Newcastle and in his lecture by top judge Ryan Jenkins, this was totally unexpected and a wonderful surprise.  He invited me to London to dance with his ID-dance youth company at Pineapple Dance Studios and I have been attending twice a month since. He is an amazingly talented choreographer and such an inspirational & positive teacher it is a unique experience that I am currently enjoying very much and looking forward to the future with iD.  

By no means least the most fun and enjoyable memory is getting to know and travel with my Angel family this year especially in Edinburgh & Newcastle on the Kalani Hilliker Tour with her family too, and my sister & Mum, it was very special.  We had such fun celebrating at the Angel birthday party too and I can't wait for exciting times ahead in 2017.

I am so lucky to be chosen as a Team Angel as they are like another little family to me and support everything I do and we are so supportive of one another.  I Love my Angel family

Ashliegh


Hi, my name is Ashliegh and I am 12 years old and live in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. I have been dancing since I was 5 years old.

I dance at Dance Kraze Dance Studios, and take many different classes from Monday to Saturday. Dance Kraze is where I found my passion for dance when I was 5, and since then I've never lost it.

I also attend Heart Work Stage Academy on a Sunday. I love to dance with them as they have such a strong passion like I do and they are amazing! 

I do 12 styles of dance, which are Acro, Latin American, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Alternative Rhythms, Street Jazz, Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Commercial and Contemporary. Although I love all of these styles, my favourite is Lyrical and Contemporary because I get to express myself more.

I have recently been accepted onto Tap Attacks Midlands Associates programme, and I take 1 class a month with them! 

I love to perform and love being on stage! I compete in local competitions and have been awarded many medals and trophies. 

Over my years of dancing I have had the pleasure and honour of dancing in some fantastic places, I have danced in the Mardi Gras at her majesty's theatre and at the videopolis in Disneyland Paris! 

I have attended many different events over the past few years such as a masterclass with Miss Abby Lee Miller, and workshops with Kalani Hilliker and Chloe Lukasiak. 

To be added to Team Angel Dancewear is completely amazing and an absolute honour! Everyone in this group are amazing! I am so excited to be working alongside these girls and can't wait for the upcoming events! 

Ashliegh
