About your hosts

In 1995 James and Claire danced for England. They had a successful amateur career becoming England’s Number 2 representative in 1999.

In 2000 they got married and in 2001 they turned from amateur to professional competitors, embarking on their teaching career as well as competing. They gained finalist status at the British National Championships, and semi-finalists in the United Kingdom and International Rising Star Championships.
