Andy Dance Teacher at Lane's Dance Academy Denton

Andy began his training in Ballroom and Latin American dancing at the age of six. At the age of nineteen, he started working professionally in theatres, arenas and also on television. Most recently Andy has performed alongside many stars of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing as part of the BBC’s Strictly at Sea Program.
Andy’s got his first professional performance job as an original cast member of Simply Ballroom, choreographed by Anton Du Beke and Erin Boeg. This very successful show did several UK tours, 2 tours of America, South Africa, Dubai, Singapore and a year’s residency in the Golden Nugget Casino Las Vegas. One of Andy’s career highlights was during the 2 American tours when he had the privilege to partner Hollywood Icon Debbie Reynolds within the show. He learned a lot discussing dance fundamentals and enjoyed hearing first-hand about Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire from someone who worked and trained with them.
Andy has performed on TV worldwide. Some credits include Dance Star Asia, Singapore’s version of Strictly. As a coach, he taught and performed with model Stephanie Carrington, where they reached the final of the series. He also performed on the Jerry Lewis Telethon live from Las Vegas to 80 million viewers and also back in England on ITV’s This Morning.
Andy’s next adventure took him to the seas spending 5 years working for Celebrity Cruises in partnership with Qdos Entertainment. As a featured dancer he performed in over 11 full-production shows. Dancing in so many different shows with different styles helped Andy become a more rounded complete performer. Through a great relationship with Qdos, he had a lot of input in creating many numbers around his speciality in Ballroom and Latin.
Other credits include Puttin’ on the Ritz - UK, alongside several stars of Strictly Come Dancing including Robin Windsor and Kristina Rihanoff.  Hooray For Hollywood - China. Several pantomimes for Qdos Entertainment and also in the world’s largest pantomime at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham. P&O Cruises, teaching passengers and performing in showcases with Victoria.
Now Andy has finished all his travels he is passionate to pass on his knowledge and love of dance.
