We are excited to welcome back Richard James on Tuesday 12th December.
Richard is a GPDIA qualified WCS instructor at both beginner and intermediate levels and has been learning WCS since 2006 and teaching since 2014. Richard is currently competing in WSDC Advance Division at National events and always looks to improve by taking private lessons with all the Top instructors.
Over the past 20 years, Richard has tried many different styles of partner dancing; Jive, Salsa, Lindy Hop and Tango, all of which have elements of music and movement which were appealing. However, after a few lessons in WCS, he knew that he had found the dance style that most inspired him; encompassing the swing of Lindy Hop and the lead & follow of Tango, combined with a non genre-specific style of music.
Richard is also half of the gruesome twosome who runs a successful WCS freestyle, Amnesia, in Tooting, London.
