ballroom & latin
at colebrooke productions
New to our family for 2021, the teaching of Ballroom & Latin in Whitby has now moved to its new home at Colebrooke Productions after a wonderful 25 year span at The LP Dance Centre.
Having professionally trained with Kevin Page and Valerie Laws for a number of years, our dancers will continue to take regular medal test with the National Association for Teachers of Dancing and compete in competitions all across the country at national and international level.
We take children from 4+ years for our Ballroom & Latin American classes and we aim to hold up to 2 medal test centres a year for children to progress with their medals through the NATD. Alongside exams, it is also possible to train students in the competitive field allowing them to compete in competitions across the country representing the School, additional students may also be asked to participate in the schools yearly shows.
Did you know we also offer ADULT tuition? These classes and private lessons are designed for people of any age to gain social confidence on the dance floor, our highly qualified and experienced teachers are on hand to help; PARTNERS ARE NOT ALWAYS REQUIRED. Due to the current situation (COVID-19) we are only offering private lessons, however these are open to all adults of any ability.
Chris has been ballroom dancing since the age 3, tutored by his mother Kerrie and Valerie Laws.
After meeting his dance partner Phoebe in the early 2000's, the pair set off on a dancing adventure stopping along the way at competitions like 'The Blackpool Championships of Tomorrow' where they were spotted for ITV shows such as Dinky Dancing (2006) & Baby Ballroom (2007).
As well as receiving training from professional's such as Kerrie, Valerie and Kevin Page (now CEO of the National Association for Teachers of Dancing), Chris & Phoebe also received tuition from many of the best professionals across the country.
After retiring from Competitive Ballroom Dance aged 16, after a year off, at 17 Chris returned to Valerie in a bid to start his teaching career, and the rest is history!
So, whether you have danced before or are taking to the floor for the first time we can help! We offer a range of tuition in Modern Ballroom, Latin American, Sequence and Rock N Roll, not to mention our Alternative Rhythms class covering everything from Salsa, Argentine Tango and Mambo.
