Come and Join us for an evening of Ballroom, Latin and Sequence Dance. We are celebrating with lots of dancing fun.
With the continuing success of programmes like Strictly Come Dancing and the growing interest in the dance that has captured everyone’s imagination. A Rochdale couple and former Open British Latin Champions, Alan and Ginny Newman, have decided to bring the charismatic rhythms of the Argentine Tango to the people of Rochdale. During a long competitive career in which they were 5 times British Champions, International Champions and World Championship finalists, Alan and Ginny turned professional and began teaching Ballroom and Latin Dance in the Rochdale area.
They then spent the last 3 years working as Dance Instructors on cruise ships using their travelling experiences around the world to study all the popular dance styles of the countries they visited. Places like Buenos Aries in Argentina and the Caribbean Islands provided a wealth of knowledge for dances such as Salsa, Merengue and of course the hypnotic Argentine Tango. As well as teaching passengers, they also choreographed routines for the entertainment team in the shows, performed on stage and hosted dancing events and Formal Balls in the evenings. “We have had a fabulous time working on the cruise Ships” says Alan, “working with many TV stars such as Brian Conley, Roy Walker, Bonnie Langford and Lionel Blair has been an unforgettable experience and a great privilege and we wanted to bring our new knowledge and expertise into our new dance classes”
They were excited by the massive interest being shown in the Argentine Tango and yet surprised that it was not readily accessible for those only wanting to learn this passionate and sensual dance.
“Everyone is talking about it and everyone wants to Dance Argentine Tango” said Alan, “But we couldn’t find anyone that just teaches this exciting dance, That’s why we spent time studying the dance and teaching the steps on our travels on the cruise ships.” It is much easier to learn than you might think “added Ginny, “we have really enjoyed teaching on the ships but we wanted to bring this wonderful dance to everyone at home”.
Alan and Ginny have a fun and easy teaching style that introduces the steps and figures right from the first lesson, ensuring that you are able to dance Argentine Tango even after only one lesson. They believe that joining dance classes like this and indeed all other dance styles has so many benefits. It is a great way to get fit and be healthier. It is also great for the mind and whilst dancing, all your troubles and worries are forgotten. Based in Rochdale, their dance school, appropriately called Dance For Fun, embodies their philosophy that all dance should be fun and enjoyable.
Alan and Ginny also enjoy supporting local charities and have done many dance workshops to help raise money for some great causes.
