Your Personal Best Gallery

Learn To Dance Group Shot

Your Personal Best Photoshoot

We’re finally getting round to uploading some our photos from the last 18 months of events, and they’ll trickle through over the course of this week.

First up is a promotional shoot we were asked to do for the Your Personal Best campaign – a campaign to encourage over 55s with a long-term condition, such as Parkinson’s, to keep active.

They were hosting a launch event for the campaign with Len Goodman and Arlene Phillips and wanted a dance group of over 50s to perform at the Olympic Park (which was still under construction at this point).

If you want to see the gallery (and the Youtube video!), head on over to our website.

Remember our Beginner Rumba Workshop this Friday

Fun Group ClassOur Friday night beginner workshops continue this Friday, 31st May, with the Rumba.  The workshop starts at 7.30pm and takes place at Burnham Park Hall, Windsor Lane, Burnham, SL1 7HR.

Rumba: ‘The dance of love’ it may be known as, but it is more the dance of restrained passion. Both dancers enticing the other with yearning looks and sensual hips, the trick to Rumba is all about the promise of what could be, without actually getting ‘down and dirty’. (Don’t worry Beginners, hips are entirely optional in this workshop!)

Remember our beginner workshops are designed for complete beginners and we aim to teach you a basic sequence in this 1 hour workshop.

The workshop costs £7.50 per person or you can pay £10 per person and stay on for our social night from 8.30pm-11pm.  Our workshops and socials run twice a month, normally on the 2nd and last Fridays of the month.

For details of our other classes you can view our timetable.

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 11

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Five couples remaining, and now they have to perform two dances each. This should really test their dance abilities and we could see quite a few mistakes tonight I fear. Continue reading

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 10

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
This week we have a new concept (well to Strictly anyway, I believe they tested it out on Dancing With The Stars previously) of a dance fusion, either two dances performed within the same song seamlessly, or a split half-way through.

We’ve seen professionals perform these type of dances at shows before, and I’ve choreographed and performed dance fusions before. These could be amazing, or a complete car crash…let’s hope for amazing!

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 8

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Sorry for the delay in the blog this week but our hosting company appeared to have a major meltdown of their servers where our database is stored, the website still worked but the blog was unavailable even to draft a post.

Anyway on to Saturday night’s show.

Is it just me or should they really have waited until there were only 6 left before doing a friends skit?!
