Barrie and Janette begand dancing when they attended a sequence beginners class in 1994 with John and Diane Free, also taking Ballroom and Latin Lessons for social enjoyment until their teachers moved back to their family roots in Scotland. They then began running a weekly social dance for all the friends they had made over the years.
Looking to improve the experience for their dancers they progressed to receiving ongoing tuition from Roy and Elaine Sharpe. They first qualified with the BATD at Associate Level in Modern Ballroom in 2011, then went on to Associate Latin in 2012 and Classical Sequence in 2013, Membership Ballroom in 2014 and Membership Latin in 2017.
