Warren and Kristi both began dancing in our parents dance clubs. Kristi from the age of 4 in Danceclub Leevi in Tallinn, Estonia where her mother Eve End still runs today. Warren age 6 in Nice n Easy Dance Studios, Bournemouth which was established in 1980 by his parents Glenn & Lynette Boyce who were World & European Ballroom Champions in 1975 and 1976. Kristi and Warren have been married for 15 years and have danced together since 2000. Their son Glenn-Richard was born in late 2001 and has grown up to become a record World Champion having won no less than 23 World titles!
Dance history - what are your highest achievements?
Warren and Kristi Boyce have won 14 British National titles since they formed their partnership in the year 2000. Having been so fortunate and tenacious to have set the record in the Amateur Championship winning a consecutive six years, they never imagined it possible with the great records that stood in the history books, that last November the Festival Chairman, Mr. Marcus Hilton MBE, would announce that they had now broken the Professional record by winning the British National Championship for the seventh consecutive time in all dances.
On several occasions during this period Warren and Kristi have appeared in the British Open Professional Ballroom final and many other major finals in the UK and over the world. Their highest WDC World Ranking Year finish has been in fourth position which they achieved twice. They are much in demand all over the world entertaining audiences with their fabulous shows and competitive performances.
As a professional partnership they aspire to be role models for their students. Warren & Kristi are proud trainers of the Elite Dance Squad based in Nice n Easy Dance Studios Bournemouth and as coaches have already guided their pupils to World, European & UK Championship titles in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. To date they have trained couples winning 25 World Championship titles between them. 2015 was a stellar year when three dancers that were taught their first Juvenile steps by Warren & Kristi made the WDC World Amateur Championship final; Liis End and Andres & Veronika End. 2016 has seen Warren & Kristi train the winning couples in both the Junior Open British at the Blackpool Dance Festival and the winners of the European Championship as well.
