The Experience Dance and Fitness Team
Gill's first major job was to be a mother of 4 children, then a psychology teacher, then an aerobics and nutrition instructor, finally making her way to becoming a dance instructor. She is a full member of the IDTA and is qualified to teach both Ballroom and Latin dance at Licentiate Level. She also gained Honours in her IDTA Argentine Tango Diploma and has a teacher qualification in Salsa. Gill is also has teacher qualifications other fitness related activities, such as Running, Core Stability, Supple Strength, Weight Management and Pilates, and has the BETA outdoor teacher award. Despite her many qualifications, Gill now restricts herself to teaching ballroom and latin dance, wedding dances. She inspires beginners and improvers alike with her sense of humour and considerable patience!
Leanne attended Gill's Solo Salsa class for a couple of years before she was asked to work with them. Leanne recently completed her IDTA Salsa Diploma and has also completed her IDTA Associate Teacher training qualification in ballroom . She cannot work for us on a regular basis as she is a Primary school teacher. We miss her hugely and we hope there may be a time when she teach for us on a regular basis.
John has completed his Ballroom Associate qualification. Due to personal commitments, he is not able to work for us on a weekly basis, but you will probably find him leading some of our Social Dances and Tea Dances, along with his wife, Sharron.
Vaughan is an enormously popular member of our team, and always there to lend a helping hand to everyone. He has jpassed his Argentine Tango Teacher Diploma and holds a student teacher qualification in ballroom. However, he has decided to suspend his teacher qualifications as he is keen to improve his dancing and to enter competitions. You will find him assisting at class and attending our function.
Christine is a very talented dancer who again has developed through this dance school. She assists at class in order to help others and to improve her own understanding of dance. She has also just begun competing.
