Carole Hood has been dancing ever since she was a little girl including ballet, modern, jazz and even rock and roll with her Dad (which she still does!) After a long gap without proper dance classes, although lots of other sporting activities, Carole started again with contemporary dance in Woodbridge and then in Ipswich at DanceEast. A year and a half later Carole joined Dance Unlimited while continuing the contemporary dance classes. With Dance Unlimited she worked collaboratively to create pieces to perform in a group twice a year at DanceEast as well as in other venues such as a church with Suffolk Music Services and in Christchurch Park with Big Dance.
On a private basis, Carole danced alone for a media student end of year video project in 2012 and now for Karen Louise Dance in her personal project. Carole says "I believed I have developed a better and more precise dance technique and the confidence I have gained allows me to be more and more creative and I hope I can give Karen’s project the credit it deserves".
