As James and Claire come from a competitive dance background - they have been invited all over the country and abroad. They have a long list of performances - topping this list was performing at the 50th birthday celebrations of Sir Elton John. They were invited along with 14 other dancers to perform at the Hammersmith Palais in front of Elton and his celebrity audience.
Another group demonstration was performed at the National finals of the Culinary Awards held at the Savoy in London - so impressed with this performance, the organisers booked the same show for the International finals in Paris.
Other demonstrations include performing at the Royal Albert Hall for the CCPR event representing EADA. Also at the Victoria and Albert Museum as they launched their Tiara Ball.
These are to name just a few, but James and Claire have performed at numerous venues up and down the country. Please visit the gallery to see the pictures from the different events they have attended.
