I have always loved to dance. I started at aged 10 at boarding school in Scotland with Scottish Country Dancing, but once I moved to Dubai I started to look for new dancing challenge and was encouraged to try Ballroom dancing by a close friend.
I started learning the American Style of Ballroom dancing but changed to the International style as it held many more opportunities for me to broaden my dance knowledge and to most importantly compete. The more I danced the more I fell in love with Ballroom dancing, every step on the ballroom floor increased my passion and drive to improve and succeed as a Ballroom dancer.
I love to challenge myself both in dancing and in other areas of my life. Having represented the United Kingdom Internationally in both the Equestrian disciplines of Showjumping and Endurance racing, my natural competitive spirit drove me to focus on the improvement of my dancing so I could start to compete.
I currently compete Pro-Am Internationally, and I know how much passion, time, training and dedication and attention to detail it take to succeed.
It is because of this I decided to open Dance For You. I want not only to spread my love of Ballroom Dancing, but very importantly to also provide every dancer, whatever their level, and whatever their dancing goal with an International level of Teaching and Facilities so everyone can fulfill and hopefully exceed all of their dance aspirations and to follow their passion and dreams.
"As a result Dance For You was formed; a combination of Dreams, Dedication, Passion and an International level of Management and Teaching. I wish that everyone’s dreams are fulfilled with Dance For You."
