Michael and Julie Pharaoh

Michael and Julie Pharaoh share their time between their busy dance school in Llanelli and their home in Mitcham south London.
The Dance Kingdom caters for all age groups with classes for beginners up to competition grade, specialising in Ballroom, Latin and Sequence. We hold two examination sessions through the UKA a year, and a number of our pupils dance in the Premier Medallist of the year in Blackpool, Sequence being normally our best events. For a number of years we took part regularly in Inventive Dance competitions travelling all over the country, winning several events in the Eighties and Nineties, but had to curtail our participation due to running our school and taking up judging and examining duties. Our best result was winning the Saga Waltz in 1988, the prize a week cruising the Rhine. With teaching restricted to Zoom classes during Lockdown, thoughts turned to routines, and when the BDC announced their Inventive Dance competition would be held via a video link, the thinking cap went on to produce 3 dances for the competition. Michael and Julie are thrilled to bits on winning with our Paso Mijas, (12 years since Paso Las Paz) and we hope that when we can get back to dancing you will love it as much as we do.
