What is your favourite dance?

We love the romantic foxtrot because I think it shows our real personality and connection on the floor. But we also really like the Quickstep - and it is our best marked dance up to date.


What is your favourite competition?

Open British




What is your proudest dancing moment?

It has to be winning the Rising Star Professional competition at the International Championship. We were very proud to bring the trophy back to England as it had been 9 years that year , since a British couple won that title -  it felt great to win it back for us and for GB.


Why you are proud to be a Chrisanne Clover sponsor?

In our opinion the Chrisanne Clover team are the best at what they do - and we are extremely proud to be a part of that team.


What has been your favourite Chrisanne Clover dress?

My favourite dress was a Sugar Pink chiffon dress with marabou boas and pink beads droppers all over the top ( I call it the Barbie doll dress)




What is your favourite coloured dress you have worn?

My favourite colour dress is - turquoise with gold sequins, I think I had the most amounts of compliments whenever I wore that dress as well.




What do you look for in a Chrisanne Clover dress? Are there certain features or likes that make your dresses unique to you?

I really like using feathers on my dresses. Chrisanne Clover have a huge choice of feather fringes and boas . I often have ostrich or marabou feathers as part of the dress design as it helps to create a more unique and exotic look on the floor that I really love.



Favourite Chrisanne Clover colour? fabric? accessory?

My favourite fabric is the Chrisanne Clover shading satin chiffon and georgette.

My favourite accessory was a black hair piece that Chrisanne Clover made for me to match one of my dresses. The Chrisanne Clover team would always make sure that all of the accessories are perfectly matched with the dress design.
