Dan went on to train at Swindon Dance Youth Dance Academy, a Centre for Advanced Training studying Urban and was there for 3 years. This was one of the very best places Dan has ever trained at for Dance.
Being at Swindon Dance Youth Dance Academy, led Dan to gain experience performing at many events throughout the years and to also study Ballet and Contemporary Dance.

Dan has an extremely enjoyable character and thrives on passing on as much knowledge and experience as he can while continuing to develop himself in every way possible in order to help others to reach there true potential to the very best of their ability.
Dan’s charismatic, energetic and unique presence he brings to performances and workshops are what sets him apart from the rest.
