About White Rose Dance

Michael and Deborah come from North Yorkshire. Our dancing career started in September 2011 at our first dance school in Brotton with a view to compete in the open Ballroom circuit. In November 2011 we entered our first competition at Scarborough Spa as and made the finals giving us a good boost to continue. Over the next few years we toured the UK dancing open ballroom events and entering major championships at the British Nationals, Internationals & Open to the World competitions. We won many competitions and ranked high in the charts when in the December of 2015 we won a Major BDC Certified Championship confirming our status as Championship Ballroom Dancers. In this same time period we developed a love of Argentine Tango and in June 2014 entered our first Argentine Tango competition in The English Riviera Dance Festival which we won and retained the title the following year in 2015. In 2016 we decided to take up Classical & Modern Sequence and entered straight into Championship level making the British Nationals Final on our first attempt. Since then we have won many Classical & Modern Sequence & Latin Sequence events and made all the British National & UK Closed Championship Finals. In 2019 we entered our first ever American Smooth competition with a fusion dance of Classical Tango and Argentine Tango in a steamy routine that became a springboard for demonstrations & Show Dances around the UK Including Cruise Ship, Dance Holidays and charity events.
