Olivia Hill

Specialises in:


I have had extensive experience in many fields of performing arts and enjoy using my knowledge and skills to help and encourage eisteddfod performers. I have adjudicated at many competitions around Australia and had excellent feedback from performers, parents and competition organisers.

I am fast, efficient and I work very hard to ensure my comments (either spoken or written) are positive and encouraging, but also constructive, so students and parents feel they have learnt something from the experience. I also make a huge effort to explain to families what I am looking for in each section and to justify my awards. I have found this leads to excellent satisfaction levels from  amilies and audience members as they understand exactly why I have given awards.

I understand the difficulties of finding an adjudicator with knowledge in all areas of dance and I personally work very hard to maintain excellent knowledge across all different dance genres as well as singing, acrobatics and performance. My school teaches a huge variety of genres, I attend a great deal of local theatre and each year I also travel to New York or London to see all the latest theatre and dance shows there.
