Absolutely brilliant, we had the most fun on the dance floor in a long time. As experienced dancers - this was the perfect break, a pleasure from beginning to end!

John & Linda West of Holiday and Dance

John and Linda West were British over 50s Latin Champions for 2007 and 2008 retiring, undefeated, in 2009. They were top of the EADA Senior II Latin chart for 2 years until retiring and were placed in the top 6 of the EADA Senior I Latin chart for several years.  Regular finalists in the UK Closed Senior 1 Latin.  Winners of Stars of the Future.  ITDA and UKA qualified. 

They have trained with the top Latin and ballroom coaches in England, starting at the Dennis Drew Studio in Manor Park many years ago, and then joining Western Dance School in Rayleigh, taking part in the Supadance League for several years before competing on the “Open Circuit”.

Although retired from the world of competition dancing, they run regular classes each week in their home county of Essex, along with practice sessions, tea dances and social dancing.

They join us at TLH a couple of times a year to host “Learn to Ballroom & Latin” breaks and if you don’t have a regular dance partner, then why not join John and Linda on their Solos break in October.
