Ballroom & Latin American
'There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them'
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.
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 :-
New Bridge Street, Newcastle upon Tyne
New Hartley, Northumberland
I provide private tuition and can choreograph a routine to the music of your choice, for that special occasion
e.g. Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday or Hen Party.
No matter your level of skill or experience, you’ll gain a lot from taking my One-on-One Lessons.
I host termly dances, including a 'Big Band Night' with a 20 piece Orchestra.
I also provide regular social dances and a Christmas Afternoon Traditional Tea Dance
all of which are exclusively for my students.
