SIMON-DAVID HUNDLEY
Director of JAGOPERFORMERS

           
Simon began performing at the age of eleven when auditions for the role of 'Tiny Tim' were advertised at his school, for a professional performance of 'A Christmas Carol'. After landing the role, Simon's passion for theatre was born and grew very quickly. He went on to perform with local amateur societies, WODYS, WODS, Kays Theatre Group, MMTG and STAC and particularly enjoyed playing lead roles 'Marius' in 'Les Miserables' and 'Cookie' in 'Return to the Forbidden Planet'. At age fourteen, he established 'Worcester Youth Drama Group' and successfully produced two pantomimes, rasing over £300 for charity. His achievements were recognised locally and he was awarded a 'Young Citizen Award' by West Mercia Constabulary.
Simon attended Christopher Whitehead High School before continuing to Worcester College of Technology to study for a National Diploma in Performing Arts. He took a gap year after obtaining his Diploma and he went to work as a parade/show dancer at Disneyland Resort, Paris. He gained his dance tuition at several local dance schools before settling at Academy Dance in Worcester, then went on to further his training at Doreen Bird College in London. His training continues in Cheltenham where he is studying to obtain full teacher status with the ISTD and RAD in tap, ballet and modern dance. Simon now teaches at Academy Dance, for the 'Pauline Quirk Academy' (Croydon) and provides extra curricular drama, dance and musical theatre tuition as well as private LAMDA coaching at several mainstream schools in the Worcestershire area through JAGO PERFORMERS. Simon will be dancing professionally at Worcester's Swan Theatre in Dick Whittington over the Christmas period, 2009.
