Great to have you reading this article! Since we are back running our dance classes we would like to give you an insight in the start up of Dance2inspire.
Developing dancing in Scotland.
Bas Willems and Jennifer Mcmillan are current competitors whom travel around the world for their competitions representing the UK. Recently they danced the World Championships in Chengdu, China. Most of their competitions are held in continental Europe like The Netherlands, Italy, Luxembourg, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Lithuania, Czech republic, Denmark etc, to much to mention.
After living in Birmingham for two years, they decided to move to Glasgow to give something back to the Ballroom and Latin dancing in Scotland. That’s where Dance2Inspire started, the dance school started of with around 10 couples, over the 2,5 years the school has expended to 4 adult social classes (beginners till advanced), a technique class, 2 kids classes. Beside the classes Dance2inspire provides also a Sunday practice and social events for all their (non) members to practice their dancing.
The feedback of the social classes is very positive, people like the great balance between the social aspect in the classes and also the technique. For most couples its important to have fun but also improving their dancing rather than just learning steps.
Dance2inspire is also promoting the younger generation to pick up dancing, recently they started two new classes one in Drumpchapel and one in Pollokshaws, with both a great group of kids who will be trained up to become the future champions.
Who are your teachers?
Recently Bas and Jennifer were not able to just teach on their own, therefore they decided to take Debbie on board. Just before the summer stop she officially joined the team, she a a qualified Latin teacher and will support Bas and Jennifer in their school.
Who said dancing is old fashioned or not cool?
To keep dancing modern and cool, dancing is innovating and developing all the time. To keep up with the current developments the teachers of Dance2inspire keep studying and providing so they can provide high quality dance classes based on the most recent dance styles and information.
