Dawn, John and Jaki are dedicated to helping you get through those first few weeks of learning the basics. Dawn started learning dance in her teens, taking IDTA disco dance medals. Later on she learnt Ceroc (Modern Jive) and crewed with Ceroc Yorkshire, teaching beginners at her regular venue. In 2015 she went into partnership with a Ceroc franchisee and jointly ran a venue in Ripon. After also dabbling with Tango and Blues, Dawn's passion grew to be with West Coast Swing and the R & B music that is so suited to the dance so she trained with American WCS champion and choreographer Robert Cordoba to teach. Both John and Jaki dance Blues, West Coast Swing and Tango. Their passion for dance is boundless and they travel far and wide to dance in any bar or social area that plays good music.
