'There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them'

JVS Dance

Hi, my name is Justine and I am the proprietor of  JVS Dance.

I have been a qualified dance teacher for nearly 30 years,

gaining my qualifications through

The Northern Counties Dance Teachers Association.

I started dancing at the age of 4, training at the

Hamill-Mitchell School of Dancing, completing all medal tests in Ballroom, Latin American, Tap, Ballet & Modern Stage.  I also studied Royal Academy of Dance Ballet.

I competed in both Amateur Latin American & Freestyle dance

before turning professional.

During my years of performing, I appeared in many

musical theatre productions, product launch promotions and 

hair & fashion shows. 

I took over the very successful

VRM School of Dance in 2019 and continue to welcome

new students to JVS Dance.

Courses & Social Events

Beginner to Strengthening Existing Skills

Dancing is a great way to improve physical fitness, mental wellness and a method of relaxation whilst making friends.

Group Lessons

My classes are easy paced, relaxed, enjoyable experiences, enabling my students to have the confidence to take to the floor.


I run 10 week courses for adults, in Ballroom and Latin American, where you will learn the basics in the

Waltz, Quick Step, Cha Cha and Jive, progressing onto the next group of classes to help you learn the

Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Samba and Pasa Doble!


My courses are held in various locations in the North East 

to make dancing available to a wider audience :-

No matter your level of skill or experience, you’ll gain a lot from taking my One-on-One Lessons.
