A Celebration of Life

Sadly, in 2023 we lost our long-term supporter and an excellent dance photographer Patrick Lauson.

Patrick was a social dancer for over a decade, but was interested in dance & sports photography.

He followed a number of events over the years, including Crystal Palace DanceSport Cup in London and Amber Cup in Kaunas, Lithuania.

On Patrick’s passing, his family has made a very kind donation of £120 on his behalf. This money will be used for future DSGB events.

Below, some examples of Patrick’s work which we wanted to share with you.

Easter – New Generation

Spring brings with it special time of new growth, regeneration and hope.

On Saturday, 29th April, the dance floor was full of fresh faces. For some of competitors, this was their very first outing in front of the crowd of people cheering them on.

From Waltz to Tango and Cha-Cha-Cha to Jive, our Juveniles, Juniors and Young Adults had a great time showing off their skills. But the pièce-de-résistance was the Viennese Waltz competition with four brand new couples swirling around at speed!

Christmas is Time for Dance

Ballroom & Latin-American dancing is a great way for Juveniles & Juniors to develop sense of rhythm, musicality and coordination, as well as make new friends.

Posture, confidence & presentation skills are among the benefits which will remain with young dancers for years to come. Performance element as well as competitions, make this activity fun for participants and spectators alike.

Tango, Rumba & Jive were just some of the dances enjoyed by parents and friends at the Wimbledon Dance Academy Christmas Ballroom Gala.
