The Hyve 2017 Sunday 17th September at Hylands House in Chelmsford (Essex)

The Hyve@ Hylands House was started by Maire O’Regan and Samantha Egan, collectively called Cameo Dance UK.

The Hyve was so named, signifying the protection of the Queen Bee and the Honey. Without the Queen Bee nothing would survive. She defies gravity itself with her size and those tiny wings. She never stops in the gathering of the Honey: for us, the Honey is The Arts, just like the Honey Bee Sam and Maire work hard in the community for the future generations.

Samantha’s background includes many years in film and theatre production. Sam has also worked as an artist director and creative designer in the fashion industry. Maire has taught music and dance in schools and produced, directed and conducted yearly productions with all age groups for the past twenty years. At present Maire is a Headteacher of an Essex Primary School.

Our vision is to make Dance and Musical Theatre performance available to all in Essex. We aim to give children and adults interested in Dance and Musical Theatre a chance to try a variety of dance styles and to perform in front of an audience. The Hyve gives people a chance to work collaboratively, learn from celebrated and outstanding teachers and embrace all Dance genres under one roof.

We are working with our community and local stakeholders to make the Hyve project successful and eventually a yearly event.

Our progression plan is to develop the talent we meet at the Hyve and to encourage the performers to work together even further. We hope to produce and direct a one off performance in Her Majesty’s Theatre, London with the support of the drama school IDA. The Hyve hopes to recreate this event in China in 2018 and the early negotiations have already begun.

The Hyve 2017 will take place on Sunday 17th September at Hylands House in Chelmsford (Essex)

Over 2,000 dancers on ONE day – performances, classes, advice, industry guests, interviews and a party in the evening!

No matter what level you are – there is something for everyone and a glorious celebration of all things dance and performing arts at The Hyve!.
