RIVIERA DANCE FESTIVAL IN TORQUAY

We have just returned from the Riviera Dance Festival in Torquay where we were fortunate enough to be asked to judge alongside some very prestigious company and took part in the workshops. It was a great experience and one that we hope we can repeat again next year and we would like to say “thank you” to all the other judges (I wont’ mention all their names) who made us feel so very welcome and of course, a big “thank you” to Philip Wylie for giving us the opportunity to take part.

FISH & CHIP SUPPER & TEAM MATCH BETWEEN SIMPLY-THE-WEST AND COWLINGS DANCE ACADEMY
