Philip Hurst

Trained by some of the top coaches in the UK such as Paul Taylor, Margaret Redmond and David Truman, Philip has over 25 years experience in the dance industry. During his competitive career he achieved many accolades in the dancing world as well as being spotted by talent scouts. He had a starring role in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Evita and performed on television alongside West End star Christopher Corcoran

After competing in the UK and around the world on the open competitive circuit for 12 years he decided to turn his passion to teaching. He teamed up with his partner Kathryn to form Hurstdance.co.uk and P&K Hurst Dance Studios and, since then, they have never looked back.

Philip and his wife Kathryn are fully qualified dance teachers and members of the International Dance Teachers Association, Allied Dance Teachers Association and United Kingdom Alliance, as well as being elected members of the Guild of Professional Teachers of Dance and the Dramatic Arts, and being established teachers of several nationwide champions and stars of the musical theatre.

Philip started hosting holidays for TLH leisure Resort in 2014 and is proving to be to be a really popular host. He is also an official compere and host for Blackpool Tower and runs his own dance events around the country. His breaks are always lively, energetic and full of fun. Enjoy great music, a fabulous atmosphere, the highest quality tuition and workshops and attention to detail.

If you are thinking of taking to the dance floor and would like to learn to dance, join Philip on his "Strictly Beginners" and "Beginners Social" and enjoy a full "Learn to Dance" experience.

If you already dance, Philip also hosts social dance breaks -  if you want to improve on your steps or even learn something new you can dip in and out of the tuition available on these breaks.
