Commitment to Excellence

Here is what our current and past clients have to say about us 🙂

I employed the services of Ana Hassett during a busy period for Fidget Feet in early 2020. She assisted me with travel booking, social media, creating flyers, and general administration work. She was efficient, easy to work with, and reliable. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and wish her every success.

Chantal McCormick

executive Creative Director Fidget Feet Aerial Dance

I have had the pleasure of working with Ana for five years now. I have constantly been impressed by her reliability, pro-active nature, professionalism, and ability to think creatively to come up with novel insights/solutions. She is very good at understanding my vision and working with me to achieve what I want in the way that I see it. Not only is she excellent at producing results, her wide-ranging interests and superb writing skills means that she is able to deliver results that are much broader in scope than I initially would have come up with for myself. She has that rare background where she understands the academic sides of things as well as the performance side of things and is able to speak fluently and effectively to both parties. I could not recommend anyone better suited to helping you achieve your career goals!

I was Ana’s student back in the day in Gypsy and Arab dances. I learned a lot from her – she is a great teacher with excellent didactic, very creative with routines, and overall a master in everything dancing. Additionally, she is very friendly with the students and encourage their creativity. I am fan of Ana’s and the work that she keeps developing, loving what she does, always researching e evolving. An excellent professional that I trust 100%.

I was Ana’s student for many years. Today, most of my dance knowledge comes from her teaching, because she, on top of being very knowledgeable of movements and gestures, also knows and transmits the history and aesthetics of the dances she teaches. With Ana, beyond the kinetics part, the student learns the Ethnochoreology of their Art. She also keeps the class mood uplifted without losing the focus, and is very patient in teaching students from diverse backgrounds, ages, and bio types. I definitely recommend her!

I know Ana for many years now, and I had the pleasure to work with her in many occasions. Most performing artists are at a loss when it comes to career planning, writing applications, etc. This is why Ana Hassett’s work is so important to ensure that any performing artist keeps competitive in the market as well as to promote a stronger Performing Arts community in Ireland (and worldwide) through a friendly approach, yet very pragmatic and knowledgeable. The online courses are so helpful and affordable! Definitely recommend!
