TERRY'S DANCE PAGE

A few of us on this planet are blessed with the Joy of being able to experience the extreme pleasure of Ballroom Dancing. To be able to move in sympathy to music whilst holding your partner seems to be a primeval pleasure. This sentence below sums up the feelings I have with this passtime.

 

 

UPDATED 11th January 2011

.

 

 

 

THIS IS THE START OF A MAJOR INDULGENCE FOR ME THAT COMMENCED A FEW YEARS AGO. I HAVE THREE MAIN INTERESTS IN LIFE, DANCING, FIDDLING WITH COMPUTERS, READING, WALKING, WILDLIFE, MUSIC HEY THATS MORE THAN THREE. IT IS WITH GREAT DELIGHT THAT I SHARE A FEW IMAGES AND SOME LINKS WITH YOU.

PICTURES WITH BLUE BORDER ARE THUMBNAILS CLICK TO GO TOO LARGER PICS.

The music Playing is of course "Sentimental Journey" nice Foxtrot?.

 

 

FIRST HERE ARE THREE PICS OF FAMOUS DANCERS FROM THE 60's WHEN MY LOVE OF DANCE WAS KINDLED.

 

 

 

Left couple are Anthony Hurly and Faye Saxton 

This fellow is said to be the father of Modern Ballroom Dancing. Here in full quickstep stride are the famous Bill & Bobbie Irvine. I have had the privilege of seeing this couple in action at the Glen in Bristol. As well as the two others that follow. The Bill & Bobbie colour pic on the right I had forgotten I had. It is from an Old Album cover.

Right are Peter Eggleton & Brenda Winslade all pictures from circa 1965?

Just found these great pics of the famous pair Bill & Bobbie Irvine.

 

    Bobby Irvine Passed away in 2004 to that geat ballroom in the Sky...and Bill Joined his partner in 2009 &Bill Joind her in 2009
