Richard started dancing in 2008 after realising the 'dreaded' first wedding dance was fast approaching.
A self professed owner of '2 left feet' left Richard quickly mastered Merengue.
He continued on with Salsa classes with his wife Shannon & realised his background in military drill teams helped with his timing & technique.
Richard is known on the social dance floor for his shenanigans and dancing with two ladies at a time.
Richard joined our instructors team in 2012 and is known for his precise & concise ability to help beginners with breaking down moves.
We love having Richard in our instructors team and he is an important part of Latin Fire Dance Academy, Christchurch.
Amellia actually joining in dancing and loving it...thank you Donna Frost you are amazing with children xxx
I can't believe that I, a lifelong DANCE PHOBIC, have been dancing for a whole year!
I'm sure I'm not the first, and I won't be the last, but I thought I'd voice my appreciation.
It means a lot to me (even if I still suck hahaha The point is I'm enjoying myself, right?)
I have Donna, Warren, Michael, Shannon, Richard and Nicola, who have taught me, all the advanced students, who have kindly given me feedback, and the whole Latin Fire community to thank for it.
At any point, I was just as likely to run than I was to stay, and I might very well not have stuck with it had it been any other place.
Cheers for laughing with me, not at me (shuddup, Michael Hobbs!) , and thank you for making me feel so welcome!
