Dance lesson with Strictly professional

Dance lesson with Strictly professional
Saffron Baillie
Wednesday 17th March 2010 by C. Freeman
Year 7 student Saffron Baillie was taught by Strictly Come Dancing professional, Karen Hardy, during a session at her flagship dance studio.

Saffron who has studied ballet, cheer-leading, street-dance and Latin, attends DanceSport Academy in Bedford who arranged the trip. She took part in a whole class session and then had tuition from Ms Hardy along with two other girls at the plush dance studio in London.

Karen Hardy danced in series 3, 4,5 and 6 of the show, partnering Bill Turnbull, Brian Capron and Gary Rhodes and winning the competition with Mark Ramprakash in 2006.

Saffron is a member of Brooke Weston's Advanced Dance and she has most recently performed at Strictly Staff Dancing and the Winter Showcase. She said: 'Karen was strict but in a nice way. We worked on Latin techniques and how to be confident. She would demonstrate a couple of steps then we would put them into a little routine and try them out.'
