Winning Dances

by on Oct.20, 2009, under Events

Many congratulations to all that took part in yesterday’s Inventive Competition, especially the finalists and winners.

Thanks to everyone that took the time and trouble to congratulate the Orchestra on the music and quality of our recent album ‘Always & Forever’, I’m delighted that you love the album whether you dance or listen to it and that the time spent designing the cover (which doesn’t break when you open it) has not been wasted.

It was a significantly poignant moment for me when Robert and Louise Aldred decided to use my waltz, ‘Always & Forever’, as music for their dance the ‘Clearwater Waltz’, those that know me fairly well will understand why, and I’m delighted for them that it was placed first in the Modern Section.

Best wishes,

Ashley Frohlick

Blackpool Sequence Dance Festival 2009

by on Oct.14, 2009, under Events

Well not long to go now before the start of another exciting Blackpool Sequence Dance Festival. There is plenty on offer for those of you wishing to dance socially as this festival is not all about competition.

The floor leading is always excellent with the likes of Steven Shaw and Helen Blackburn and also many past “Blackpool” Champions leading their own prize-winning dances. It’s probably the most relaxed of all the dance festivals with a warm and friendly atmosphere and it also has great music from Larry Green at the organ and of course ourselves.

If you haven’t been before or haven’t made it for a while, there is still time to book your tickets from the Dance Festival website (located on our ‘LINKS’ page).

I look forward to seeing you there (come and say hello)!

Best wishes,

Ashley Frohlick

Retirement

Mirko Gozzoli and Alessia Betti.Mirko & Alessia

After a long and extremely successful career Mirko and Alessia have announced their retirement as a couple from competitive dancing.

Having performed for them on many occasions and admired their wonderful dancing from the stage, we wish them the very best of luck in the years to come.

A fabulous partnership, the epitome of ballroom dancing and inspiration to so many, they will be sadly missed!
