Andrew Haydock

Andrew was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the age of six he moved to Port Coquitlam BC, then he started his formal training at Danzmode Production, under the direction of Rachael Poirier. Spending many hours at the studio, training in a variety of styles, he was able to compete in many local and international competitions. During his training he started his professional dance career working with Patrick Roberge Productions in shows such as Pop City, BC Marketers Awards, and Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Gala. After he finished his training at Danzmode, Andrew was accepted into the Source Dance Company, directed by Joanne Pesusich. After his two years in Source he was given a scholarship to attend Arts Umbrellas Grad Program, under the direction of Artemis Gordon and Lynn Sheppard . He’s had the pleasure of working with choreographers such as Crytstal Pite, Heather Laura Grey, Amber Funk Barton, Eric Beauchesne, Heather Dotto, and Wen Wei Wang.  He has also just finished his first national tour with Wen Wei Dance Company performing in Agora De La Danse and La Rotonde festivals. Andrew is currently focusing his time on his collective ‘Dance Anonymous’ which will be premiering work in summer of 2022. Andrew’s excited to join the Pro Dance faculty!
