Strictly 1st CENTRAL
Congratulations to our very own ballroom dancer extraordinaire, Wayne Jones (in the green tie), from our In-house Engineers team in Manchester, who has managed to dance his way to a place at the National Finals in Blackpool, the home of ballroom dancing.
After taking up Ballroom and Latin dancing as a hobby two years ago with much success – winning a combination of bronze and silver medals – Wayne decided he wanted to take on a new challenge and entered the North West regional competition, a qualifier for the Nationals.
As a relative novice in the field of dance, Wayne hadn’t set his expectations too high, with dancers in his category having a wealth of experience (some of them had been dancing for around 10-20 years), the competition was bound to be pretty steep.
However, Wayne qualified in 6th place in Latin and 5th in Ballroom, earning him a place at the National Finals in Blackpool later this year!
Congratulations Wayne and good luck for the Finals!
