Pete started with three left feet and no dancing experience. But in no time at all, Amanda has whipped him into shape. He can now do a Waltz, Rumba and Cha Cha after only five weeks. Occasionally she still has to bring out the whip but soon puts him right. I danced thirty plus years ago but lost it all until we found Amanda and Alan at PARKERDANCE. I am really enjoying getting back into it all. They are both so patient and professional.

If you want to learn to dance but feel that you can’t tell a waltz from a tango or that you have two left feet then Alan and Amanda Parker at Parkerdance are the people to go to. They will put you right, their patience is phenomenal and they make learning to dance fun. The first time you go to that dinner dance or holiday hotel and find you can dance along instead of just watching the others creates a special moment.

If you want to learn in a professional yet fun environment this is the place to go. At Parkerdance we can have a laugh whilst learning which makes for enjoyable lessons. We met Alan and Amanda on a cruise, we had a taster lesson with them and thoroughly enjoyed it, on finding our they were quite local to us we booked ourselves some dancing lessons. To say I had two left feet was an understatement but with Amanda’s great teaching skills, sense of humour and most of all patience I have realised I have a left and right foot. The lessons have to be fully recommended to anyone and you will find no one better to teach you than Parkerdance.

We are new to dancing and have been having lessons for about 3 months. There is a friendly relaxed atmosphere and we are pleased how quickly we have progressed – almost 5 dances now! Amanda is a teacher who has the knack of explaining in different ways and showing you so you understand. She is also very patient, a good thing I think! We’ve had a lot of fun so far and expect to continue enjoying our lessons.

This is a testimonial for Parkerdance, in particular for Amanda who is our personal instructor. We find Amanda is a professional and superb instructor with much patience, tolerance and a great sense of humour. We would highly recommend Parkerdance to anyone learning to dance and we will continue with our dancing instruction for as long as it takes.
“Ballroom Dancing for Absolute Beginners” – just what I fancy. I’ve watched Strictly for years so should be OK. Well I’m here to learn – first, a new language, toe lead, step-lock-step, New Yorker, chasse etc. Six weeks on and I realise it’s too difficult, but the people in my class and some in the other classed are all supportive and encouraging. However what keeps me going is the patience, tenacity, dedication and sense of humour of two brilliant teachers – Amanda and Alan.
There’s still a long way to go but 8 months on, thanks to them I danced at the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool and had the confidence to get up and dance a bit on holiday. So – turn off the TV and stick the remote in a drawer. Come and have some fun, make new friends, learn a new skill and keep fit.
From the minute we walked through the door at Parkerdance we were made to feel welcome. Amanda and Alan are friendly, patient and have a good sense of humour! Neither of us are natural dancers but we look forward to the lessons, have a laugh every week and somewhere along the way we’ve learnt to waltz and cha cha too!

We started dance lessons with Amanda with the intention of learning the basics to get us through formal dances. However Amanda’s enthusiasm, energy and sense of humour (which she definitely needs for us !!) has spurred us on the continue our lessons giving us an interest we can both share. We thoroughly look forward to our weekly lessons (and laughs!). Well done Amanda!
We are delighted with the dance lessons we have from Parkerdance. The lessons are a joy. Amanda combines thorough tec hnique with lots of humour and patience. It is a pleasure to go for a lesson and enjoy every step. The hard work seems to fly by and we can see some improvement every lesson. Overall we can certainly recommend Parkerdance to anyone who wishes to improve their dancing.

I am so pleased I joined the Parkerdance School’s beginners class last years as it had opened up a whole new world for me. As well as learning ballroom, latin and sequence dances I have met a new circle of friends! Amanda and Alan are excellent teachers who want us t enjoy our classes and we always do! My highlight has been dancing recently at the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool which for me was like a dream come true. I can’t believe the progress I have made with them and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing to learn or improve their dancing.
My husband and I had never been dancing until we went for lessons with Amanda to learn our first wedding dance routine. We thoroughly enjoyed our lessons. Amanda is very patient and great fun! Our routine went very well on our wedding day and we had kept the lessons a secret and surprised all of our guests. Without the lessons we would have been shuffling around the dance floor. We would highly recommend PARKERDANCE to any couple wanting to perform a first dance routine on their big day.

We have been dancing for a year now and really feel we have achieved something. The class is really friendly, we have good fun and its good exercise. Amanda and Alan are really patient and encouraging and they make you feel you can master steps which you think are difficult.
