B.I.T.A. Qualified, Gold Ice Dance Coach
Former British Champion, European & World Ice Dance Competitor
Before moving to Solihull Ice Rink, I coached at Bracknell for nearly 10 years. During that time I coached Solo Champions
and had successful pupils in the British Junior Ice Dance Championships.
I have choreographed many groups for pantomimes "on ice" and choreographed many ice dance programmes at Championship Level.
I have taught beginners of all ages, and taken them through to reach their potential, whether social skating or competitive.
Naturally I have taught the various NISA Skating Courses.
For many years, I worked along-side Master Coach Jimmy Young at his Ice Dance School in Engelberg, Switzerland.
Along with my dance partner Duncan Lenard, we wish our pupils to enjoy their skating and obtain the best standards
possible. We hope in the future to also coach champions at Solihull and currently have competitors in the
British Solo Ice Dance Championships and the British Adult Championships.
