Anne Glee (nee Mawson) is a former Senior Ballroom Champion reaching a ranking of 7th in the UK with her previous partner, Ian Pickles. Together, Ian and Anne represented the UK in international competitions and appeared as dancers on “A Touch of Frost” before retiring from competition in 2003. In 2005, Anne moved to Spain to help Ian establish the only English style Ballroom Dance school in Mallorca. Anne is qualified as a ballroom dance teacher with the UKA. (United Kingdom Alliance).
Returning to England in 2009 to care for her elderly father, Anne started her ballroom dance school in West Yorkshire by running classes in local village halls. Thanks to the support of her students, she has now returned to the area in which she grew up and is now based at her purpose built studio in the beautiful village of Shelley, West Yorkshire.
Anne’s popular ballroom dance classes are well known for their informal and friendly atmosphere. Anne brings her enthusiasm and knowledge to every lesson and says she specialises in those with two left feet. All she requires is that people bring both those feet with them when they attend!
Glee’s Dance studio has grown from strength to strength. Adding a new lounge and expanding the existing floor space in 2013 to accommodate the growing number of enthusiastic social dancers, Glee’s Dance Studio has just opened a brand new studio space and introduced two new teachers to the existing small team. We are now available 7 days a week and teach a full range of classes to both children and adults. Our popular social dance programme is still growing and we are excited to develop the Medalist and competitive arm of our business and grow the North as a power house of excellence in dance.
Our aim is to become the best ballroom dance centre in Huddersfield and we are excited to welcomes everyone to share the fun of learning to dance ballroom. For details of Ballroom, Latin and all other dance styles and other activities please see the services and timetable pages.
