Online dance classes led by Wolverhampton teacher go global
A dance teacher from Wolverhampton has been attracting people from all over the world with his online ballroom and Latin classes during the coronavirus lockdown.
Professional dancer Warren Bullock, who runs Zig Zag Dance Factory in Showell Lane, launched the virtual, fun classes when the social distancing measures were put in place.
He had to cancel his usual, face-to-face lessons due to the new guidelines, and wanted to still bring people a bit of joy.
"It's been really amazing," said Warren, who runs the school with his wife and professional dance partner Jane Phillips.
"We've had hundreds of people watching from all over the world – Alaska, Peru, Brazil, the USA, Australia, Russia, Japan – absolutely everywhere."
The pair have been hosting free dance classes live on Facebook and Instagram; handing out tips and tricks, chatting to viewers, and entertaining adults and children alike.
They have also had help from two out of three of their daughters, India and Alicia, also professional ballroom and Latin dancers, and India's dance partner Roman Sukhomlyn.
