MALCOLM WHITE

Malcolm is VERY excited to DJ for Manchester’s first Micro Fusion exchange. The delicate balancing act of keeping dance energy high while selecting the best micro tracks is an exciting challenge! Playing tunes for many years at amazing fusion events such as ICE Bear, Double-shot, EBI, Hummingbird Blues and IRN-Blues has given him the experience to select the right tunes to keep everyone hyped for dancing.

Melissa BW 2.jpg

MELISSA DAVY

Melissa has always loved dancing. During her student days you’d more likely find her on the dancefloor than by the bar. She then discovered partner dancing, with Blues and Fusion becoming her favourites.
With a first class degree and masters in education, she has always been interested in how people learn best. Through several years of teaching dance, she wants to share the creativity and sense of fun that each dance brings.

Sree Yoga BW.jpg

SREE RC

Practicing yoga for many years, Sree has learned that to maximise dance pleasure we should all look after our bodies. The stretches she'll show also lead to new movements and ways to connect with both yourself and others leading to a heightened dance experience.

DJ Malcolm BW 2_edited.jpg

MALCOLM WHITE

Malcolm loves to fully engage with the music, finding every movement and isolation the music draws him into. He's super excited to share this all with you and the for magic it will create on the dance floor.

FRANKIE PORTER

Frankie gave up dancing at the age of four, when she was cast as the Ugly
Duckling for a ballet recital and was so offended she quit on the spot. 
She was lured back in 2011 when she began a heated affair with Argentine
tango, and has since fallen for blues, fusion, hiphop and micro. (She still hasn’t been back to ballet).

Charlotte BW_edited.jpg

CHARLOTTE BROWN

Charlotte adores the world of fusion because it has given her so many gorgeous dances with gorgeous dancers. To her, micro means a dance so small and intimate that it feels like a private moment with your partner. Having a whole weekend to focus on connection over showiness feels like the perfect way to get us back on our feet after too long apart from each other.

Laura B&W.jpg

LAURA GIOIA

When Laura was 6 she wanted to take ballet classes and her father told her that she didn't have the right body for dance. Luckily she was a stubborn enough young woman, and 15 years ago she started taking a variety of dance classes and finally discovering and falling in love with blues and fusion. Laura loves developing her classes starting from natural organic movements and helping her students playfully discover their own voice and style.
