Richard started dancing in 2008 after realising the 'dreaded' first wedding dance was fast approaching.
A self professed owner of '2 left feet' left Richard quickly mastered Merengue.
He continued on with Salsa classes with his wife Shannon & realised his background in military drill teams helped with his timing & technique.
Richard is known on the social dance floor for his shenanigans and dancing with two ladies at a time.
Richard joined our instructors team in 2012 and is known for his precise & concise ability to help beginners with breaking down moves.
We love having Richard in our instructors team and he is an important part of Latin Fire Dance Academy, Christchurch.
So Warren gave me my mission for 2016 last night: "Don't doubt yourself".
Thank you for building my confidence up and up and up, Donna and Warren - I'm working on it ;)
Thanks, Latin Fire, for making my year so much more exciting, especially to my ammmazzzing teachers David and Lisa, and Donna and Warren!! (and to Kendall and Jeff for having me in their classes occasionally and being so encouraging! :) )
It has been really fun meeting so many awesome people, and, of course, learning to dance! I wish you all a great New Year, and hope it brings you more than you ever wished for.
Look forward to seeing you again next year! ♥
