About Chris and Dance
Chris started dancing at the age of eight
performing Scottish Country Dancing and
then Highland Dance winning many
competitions in the London area and
demonstrating the Highland Sword Dance
with a piper at various events.
As a young teenager I studied ballroom
and Latin dancing soon passing medals
up to gold bar before turning professional
at the age of 19, passing exams with the
Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) and the International Dance Masters Association (IDTA), in both ballroom and Latin. During this period I was teaching at the Norman Darvill School of Dance, High Wycombe. Later, I also passed exams in ice dance and pair skating.
Dance is for everyone no matter what age or part of the world you come from. It is a most sociable way to get fit while enjoying yourself.
Our emphasis is on looking good on the dance floor.
Make friends while learning coordination skills keeping the brain and the body agile in the best physical art form.
We encourage absolute beginners the ones with 2 left feet, who are often surprised at how quickly they can progress with the right approach.
We start beginners with the most popular social style of ballroom dances. When confident in these, we introduce standard ballroom as danced competitively throughout the world.
Our Latin classes follow on from the ballroom session at the same level to enable both styles to be danced.
Our intermediate ballroom class caters for those who are experienced and wish to learn more advanced figures and combinations, and improve technique to a high standard.
Together with our teaching assistant Norma, we hope that we can encourage you and others in the North West to learn dance with all the benefits it brings; and fun too!
We hope to see you on the dance floor soon!
