How long has Dancing Shoes been around for?
Dancing Shoes has its 10th birthday in January 2016.  I have been acting on stage since I was 15.

At what point in your life did you know you wanted to be a Artist/Poet/Musician?
Since first acted I wanted to go the stage school but was not the done thing ‘back in day’ so ended up training to be a teacher but dropped out and went into banking – ah well.

Karaoke machine but they didn’t have them back then – had a folk guitar though which I taught myself to play

This Christmas. Spending time with family, getting my laptop back from the Curry’s hospital.

Have you got any plans for the New Year?
Planning and putting music together for this years show in July.

If you could get anything for Christmas this year what would it be?

New set of dance mirrors for the 3B studio as current ones were a big expensive mistake, a good video camera to record the shows myself, projector to use in classes, a laptop that won’t die on me …….. the list is endless.If you would like to contact Dancing Shoes then please feel free to follow them on Twitter or Facebook
