How long have you been dancing for and how did you get into it?
63 years ! Since the age of 3. My mother took me to ballet classes and then she took over the dancing school in 1957 - I started teaching at 17 years of age.
What is your favourite dance and why?
Foxtrot - as I love the music. Waltz as it shows all elements - rise & fall, creating lines, slow and fast actions. Rumba - the music again and the classical actions. Cha-cha - Probably the easy and exciting one to teach.
