holidays at the Victoria Hotel

We just returned from a four night Christmas dance stay (2015) at the Victoria hosted by Pierre and we had the most fabulous time. I guess we fit into the intermediate dance class but there were complete beginners and advanced dancers there too. Pierre made the whole experience fun, leaving no one out. We have already booked for next year.... if you dance ballroom in this country then you are missing out if you don't try this place out.    


Pierre Schrauwen

Pierre Schrauwen is without doubt one of the most respected names in the profession. He lives and breathes dance and entertainment and having enjoyed an exciting career he brings a freshness and enthusiasm to our dance programme. A highly respected choreographer and dancer, Pierre knows what a great evening of entertainment is all about.

Pierre had an early grounding in the technique of old time Sequence, Ballroom and Latin American dancing that has stayed with him throughout his career to date. He progressed to the Victor Sylvester Dance School where he entered the competitive world of dancing. Along with his partner, Tony Thornton, Pierre competed all over the country and they were rated as number 1 couple in the world ratings for 5 years, winning over 50 major championship titles including:

  • Sequence World Cup - twice undefeated
  • Undefeated British Sequence Champion
  • 2 times Welsh Champion
  • Twice All England Champion

Pierre decided to turn professional and took his professional exams with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. His love of dancing, entertainment and people is always evident and he is constantly around to chat, help and teach. He has now been dancing for some 40 years and teaching for 25 years. As a host you are sure of a warm welcome and plenty of wonderful dancing.
