Latin American Associate of
The Imperial School of Teachers of Dance



I enjoy dancing so much, that I want to teach other people to dance, so they too can get as much pleasure
from this social and recreational activity as my partner Gerard and I do, dancing together.


Don’t be a couch potato:
• Learn a new social skill together (or improve your current dancing)
• Keep fit physically and mentally, and have fun
• Enlarge your social circle and make new friends
• Discover a whole new world of entertainment
 
"Primarily, Ballroom and Latin Dancing is both a mental and a physical recreation and as such it can scarcely be said to have an equal.  Taken seriously it can give the young person as much physical exercise as is desired; to the more mature dancer,  it can give exercise that is effective without being too strenuous; to the busy man or woman it will provide that mental relaxation which is so necessary to physical health." Alex Moore

PRIVATE LESSONS
You may prefer to learn to dance in a one to one situation rather than a group lesson, or maybe you have missed several group lessons and need to catch up.
Maybe you are keen to improve your dance technique, or improve it to the level necessary so that you can enter the Medal Tests.*
Getting married and want some dance steps for your Wedding Dance ?
Private Lessons are the answer to all these scenarios, and I can provide them on request.
Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
*NB As a fully qualified Teacher with the ISTD I can both train and enter students for the Medal Test Examinations.

BALLROOM DJ
Having a party, or organising a function, and want to dance to something other than Disco/funk?
I am fully licensed to provide recorded music for entertainment at Private or Public functions.
I have my own sound system and light show.
I have a wide variety of recorded Strict Tempo Dance Music for Ballroom, Latin and Popular Sequence Dancing.
And, if you have got some keen Dad dancers, I can play Disco too!
Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
