A wealth of experience was gained in competitive dance reaching `A’ grade status in three styles and winners of many championships. Of which the most memorable being Australian Senior Open New Vogue finalist three years running and Victorian Senior Open Latin Champions. Now teaching and holding dance workshops led to the choreographing of many dances which has become popular on social dance programmes.

Andrea’ and John have been going to the Gold Coast for the successful  GOLD COAST DANCE AND WORKSHOP WEEKEND for New Vogue Music  held in June for the past 2 years and in 2016 will feature once again – their incredible enthusiasm is so infectious that visitors from all over Australia and New Zealand come along for a fabulous week of fun instruction and a refresh of their wonderful choreographed New Vogue Sequences Dances, The New Vogue Waltz, The JAB Samba, The Louisa Classic Waltz, The Anna Lisa Modern Waltz and many more…..

The aim is to lift the profile of social dancing by improving the standard and enjoyment and promote growth.
