Two of our students, Kathryn and Michael, are set to take the dancing world by storm with their recent success on the dance floor. Kathryn started dancing when she was 10 and Michael when he was 12. Their love of dance started on a family holiday when their mum asked the teacher to take Kathryn for a waltz, she really enjoyed it and so started going to the lessons on holiday, led by Deborah and Gordon Maguire from Good2dance. A little later Michael came along and they both picked it up very quickly. When the holiday was over Deborah and Gordon recommended a local dance school, A & L dance academy, for both Michael and Kathryn to continue with their dance. Since then they have been trained by Alex and Lisa Ivanets and have competed in many competitions, the most recent of which has been the ‘Champions of Tomorrow’ competition in Blackpool. Kathryn got through to the semi-finals for ballroom (solo and with a teacher) and got to the semi- finals (solo) and the quarter- finals (with a teacher) for Latin. Not to be outdone, Michael won both the Ballroom and the Latin with his partner Megan in the Under 16 Junior beginners category. Congratulations to both Kathryn and Michael on such excellent achievements!
