Mentoring

Lois Taylor-Jones

I have been taught by Anna since I can remember, and when it comes down to be trained to be a teacher I can not think of a better person to be trained by and I cannot recommend Anna and Hype enough!

Working with Anna introduced me to a new way of enjoying being a dance artist.

The life of a dance teacher can at times be so isolating however, meeting and working with Anna has not only given me the opportunity to ask for advice but also to share good practice and develop me professionally.

I have received mentorship from Anna for over ten years. She has always managed to encourage, guide and challenge me - in ways that have kept my career expanding and developing. Her straight talking approach, depth of knowledge and clarity in vision  never fails to inspire and challenge me. I'm deeply grateful for her guidance.

Anna has years of experience in the dance sector. The knowledge she has in invaluable and she regularly mentors fellow dance professionals.

Individual, personal mentoring can be for any aspect of dance, including;

  • Teaching qualifications
  • Running a company
  • Creative approaches to teaching dance
  • Freelancing in the dance sector
  • Styling for dancer performances
  • Teaching observations
  • Life coaching

Anna Olejnicki Mentoring

Mentoring can be arranged to suit each individual, face to face, on the phone, Skype with some people having regular contact, or others as and when they feel they need support and guidance. Group training can also be arranged.


Working as a mentor allows me to have an all seeing, independent eye and help people in the sector work with focus and support. My own mentors continue to listen and assist me work though all of my aspirations.
