Kris began dancing when he was eight years old and quickly went into medallist and open competitive dancing, particularly in Classical and Modern Sequence. A very successful competitive career culminated in Kris becoming British Junior Champion at the Blackpool Junior Dance Festival in 2008 and went on to achieve finals in all major Youth, Amateur and Professional events and Championships.
Since turning professional in 2014, Kris has qualified in Ballroom, Latin and Classical Sequence to Licentiate level as well as becoming a qualified Scrutineer. This led to various adjudicating opportunities across the country with particular highlights including being named as the Chairman of Adjudicators at the United Kingdom Classical Sequence Championships and also at the first major return of competitive dancing to the Blackpool Tower in many years; a place full of fond memories for Kris’ dancing career.
Having worked at the studio from the day it opened in 2014, Kris did not have a second thought when offered the opportunity to take over in July 2017. As Principal, he has opened the studio doors to new styles and opportunities and always offers a warm welcome to newcomers!
