My Dance Story

Hi my name is Richard

 

I have been dancing for many years and it has become a big part of my life and a real passion. I have over ten years of experience in Ballroom and Latin American dance including teaching and demonstrating for an established IDTA qualified dance school for a number of years.

 

I have also completed two years of full time professional training in classical and modern dance at Dance Studios Scotland where I trained in ballet, contemporary and theatre dance. My training included all aspects of dance such as technique, performance, improvisation and choreography as well as stage performance, percussion and dance history.

 

As a result of my training I gained a great deal of performance experience through regular assessments and group dance performances as well as performing live on stage. And last year I performed in a large scale production of Pagliacci with Scottish Opera in front of an interactive live audience.

I love teaching and helping others to dance and one of my aims is to encourage people to have the confidence to dance and enjoy it as much as I do. Dancing is a great way of keeping fit and there is also the social aspect of meeting others and having fun as dancing is for everyone!

So if you would like to dance, whether as part of a group or on a personal basis then don’t hesitate, come along and GET DANCING!
