Director and founder, Hannah Hafely, was homeschooled from kindergarten through 12th grade allowing her more time to devote to her talent of dance. She began dancing at the age of 3 at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Her freshman year of high school, Hannah auditioned for, and became a member of the Met Too Youth Company, the junior company of the Houston Met. She danced at the Met through graduation training in ballet, tap, jazz, as well as many other styles of dance. There she was also afforded numerous performance opportunities and intensives throughout the U.S.
Today, she continues to substitute teach at the Houston Met. She also auditioned and accepted an apprentice position with Frame Dance during her first year of college. Currently, she is completing her undergraduate degree from the University of St. Thomas in International Studies and Philosophy, that she intends to apply to her dance diversity and techniques. At Urban Dance, Hannah hopes to offer a place for the community to share in their love for dance.
