Colin Gausden and Natalie Davis. Dressed for ‘GREASE’

With his dance partner Natalie Davis, Colin regularly ‘Show Dances’ at events along the Costa del Sol including ‘American Independence Day’, ‘The Foreign Residence Show’, ‘The over 50’s show’ and in stage shows such as ‘Back to the 40’s’ and ‘The Marbella Christmas Variety Show’

Colin’s ‘PRIVATE LESSONS’ are designed to ‘Fast Track’ couples from ‘can’t dance’ to ‘can dance’ in hours rather than weeks. The lessons are always 2 hours long and follow a proven format that has never failed to deliver clients their own ‘personalized’ dance routine, especially those clients that insist - “you won’t teach me, I’ve got two left feet”.

Part of your PRIVATE LESSON will be the creation of your own dance routine consisting of 4 – 5 dance moves chosen from the 50 moves (plus variations) listed below which have selected from dance clubs and stage shows from around the world. Each move is then linked together and finally ‘looped’ into your own personalized routine. More moves can then be added at further PRIVATE LESSONS or at any of JiveSpain’s group classes.
