MEET LUCIE: Hi my name is Lucie Deakin I am 15 years old and attend Hamilton School of Dance. Hi I have been dancing since the age of 4 having taken many exams within ballet modern and tap. A few highlights have been dancing in the finals of Janet cram, performing in Disneyland Paris, performing at Her Majesty’s theatre, and now becoming an acropad athlete -which i still can’t believe! I have been training in acro for around 4 years now which is one of my favourite classes of the week. I love being able to learn new things and work on a variety of skills within acro.
WHAT'S IN YOUR DANCE BAG: Some things in my dance bag include my ballet stuff, modern stuff, tap shoes, blocks, theraband and some essential like my hairspray and bobby pins.
FAVE ACRO MOVE: Picking one favourite move is such a hard decision but currently it’s backhandspring landing in splits.
WHO IS YOUR HERO: I am inspired by soo many people from the people I take class amongst and all the inspirational teachers and coaches I’ve been taught by. Autumn Miller, Tara Bajan and Briar Nolet are also dancers I look up to.
ON MY REST DAY: Occasionally when I have rest days and not dancing or practising, I like to go out shopping, meeting up with friends and visiting my family.
I would like to say a massive thankyou to acropad for giving me this amazing opportunity of becoming an acropad athlete. I am very grateful and can’t wait to work with the other very talented athletes!
