Dancing On Ice – ITV

Saturday, 1st February, 2014

We feel very fortunate and honoured to have been selected by ITV Studios to provide training for ITV’s 2014 Dancing On Ice Stars and favourites, Hayley Tamaddon (Coronation St Actor) and Daniel Whiston.

We were meant to be working on joint Choreography, for them with the amazing skating icons Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean, but due to last minute logistics, on the day, we were working alone with Hayley and Dan.

We arrived at the studio, early dressed to dance, as opposed to flapper dresses etc.. The camera crew surrounded us, the whole time, so the pressure was on to be fun, but relaxed and accurate.. We focused on authentic 1920’s Charleston moves and tricks that would compliment it, but the challenge was to find moves that could work on ice..

Both Hayley and Dan, were a pleasure to work with. Fun and really down to earth. We were invited to return to the ITV studios to watch them dance and skate along with their peers,  live on the show, that weekend. Phillip Schofield was on top form. It was a great atmosphere, as all the choreographers sat together, cheering on the skaters they coached. Amazing time..
