PE and Ballet Teacher
We need art, we need music, we need dance, and we need movement, so here I am!
My name is Simona Haiducu and I am the “ballerina” of our great nursery and school. I already have nine years of practice as dance teacher at Avenor and it is a great pleasure to continue to do what I love most: to dance and to teach.
I love working with children because they offer me the chance to cheerfully ‘pass on’ all of the years of practice and experience to the next generation. Children give me a lot of positive energy; they are happy, beautiful, creative, curious, and very willing to learn new things every day.
I graduated from the University of Science and Arts of Bucharest, the Arts of Show class, and the Choreography High School of Galati. I have a professional status as a choreographic technician and I develop these skills daily.
After graduating from the Choreography High School, I performed in one of the most famous Romanian Ballet Companies - “Oleg Danovski” for one year where I danced in various ballet shows, like “Cinderella”, “Swan Lake”, The Nutcracker”, and “Sleeping Beauty”. Then, I collaborated with the National Theatre of Bucharest ‘’Ion Dacian’’ and danced on many TV Shows.
I encourage every child to reach their potential and achieve their best in any situation, giving them confidence and discipline that can be applied to all aspects of their life. The ballet classes are set up with a view to inspire children to love music, movement and freedom of expression through dance.
Every year, children who register for the Ballet Club have the opportunity to perform on stage and reveal their newfound skills not only to their parents, but especially to themselves, and to recognise the progress that they have made over the year. At school, I formed a semi-professional ballet class for the children who are more dedicated, with special skills and evolved during the years through this art. The group name is ‘’Rainbow Girls’’ and it was established in 2014 with 8 girls. Since then, we have participated in many dance competitions, nationals and internationals, like ESDU Dance Star-Croatia, Dance World Cup-Germany, Vibe International- Austria, Freedom Dance Festival-Hungary and Dance World Canada, winning many awards, lot of experience and good memories.
It is a great experience to work with special people and amazing children and I am grateful for that.
Thank you Avenor Nursery for the opportunity to create new artists!
