Teaching Staff & Associates
I started dancing at the age of 6 and as a child competed in local, national and international Old Time, Ballroom and Latin American competitions. Linda and I met on the competition circuit, partnered each other in 1982 and married in 1984.
I started dancing at the age of 5 with the ISTD at a school in Worcester Park. After completing my medals I decided that I wanted to compete, and commenced competitive dancing at 17.
Dancing together
Together we won a number of significant Ballroom and Latin American events, including the prestigious London Cup. We were Ballroom and Latin American British Team members. We turned professional in 1992 qualifying as teachers with the ISTD in 1993/4. In 1996 Linda turned full time professional followed by John in 2004.
I started dancing at the age of 5 and have competed on the open circuit since 2005. I was ranked no.1 in the country in both Ballroom & Latin in both Juvenile and Junior age groups. I was British National Junior Ballroom Champion in 2009, and represented England many times both here and abroad. My Ukrainian partner and wife, Nika, and I are winners of the British National, Closed UK, Embassy Ball (USA), Galaxy & Europa Imperial, British Open and World Youth Ballroom championships.
In addition to competing internationally, I am part way through working for a PhD in Mathematics at Surrey University.
I am originally from Kiev, Ukraine, and moved to the UK in 2013 to study for my 'A' levels and partner with Michael. We have a very successful partnership which became a partnership for life when we were married on 9th August 2017.
In addition to competing internationally, I am in my final year of a Business Management Degree at Kingston University.
I danced competitively as a child and adult, and with my Dutch partner represented the Netherlands.
