How long have you been dancing?
Since I was 4 or 5 so almost 15 years!
Best SUBLDS memory?
Learning that I was so difficult to understand with my Essex accent! At one point during my Strictly experience last year I actually had to ask Fergus to translate for me! Despite that, I am very proud of my Best Foreign Accent award!
Despite being fairly new to SUBLDS, you’ve been dancing for a long time haven’t you?
I was so excited to join SUBLDS last year as I could never imagine not dancing. It’s been a part of my life for so long! I love it! I started off at Ballet, Tap and Modern classes like most but I hated it plus I was terrible, so someone suggested I try the Ballroom and Latin classes down the road and that was that.
Why should beginners think about competing?
Competing is so much fun, not only do you get to experience the amazing team support of SUBLDS but you gain loads confidence through it. Plus, I feel it gives you that extra push to improve as at each comp you wanna do better than last time. It can be a scary thought to go out and compete at first but there’s no need to worry as me and Bart will be there to help you out and give moral support as well as the rest of the SUBLDS team.
What makes you and our male team captain Bart a good team to bring in lots of SUBLDS shinies this year?
We have all bases covered between us! We are motivational, friendly and caring (Don’t be scared by the Essex, I’m a lovely person, honest!). We are extremely excited about the year ahead plus we have the needed organisation skills to pull it all off. We understand what it can be like being new to SUBLDS for all members, beginners and experienced. We both spend lots of time practising so one of us should always be on hand for help and support! We hope that we can keep the team spirit going throughout the whole year and it’s that that’s going to lift SUBLDS dancers through to the final!
Describe SUBLDS in 3 words
Friendly. Exciting. I wanna say magical but I’m not sure that’s the right word. When I think of SUBLDS I get all happy and it feels a bit like a dream so yeah let’s go magical.
Team Fred or Team Ginger?
FRED! Love him in his little suit, it’s so cute!
