Hi, my name is Chris Bevis and I am married to Roy. I started dancing from a young age with my aunts teaching me to jive and joined ballroom and Latin classes when I was at senior school and continued when I started work. I gained both my junior and senior medals in both ballroom and latin dancing. Gosh, that was a long time ago!
I was introduced to line dancing through a friend and attended the classes of Gabby Hancock of Sussex Ranch Branch at Haywards Heath and achieved my medals and teaching exams with her.
I am very lucky that Roy has supported me with my passion for dancing and has always accompanied me to classes and social events and – after much nagging by me – joined me in a class for couples line dancing and gained his bronze medal – with honours.
We took over the club 18 years ago and thankfully are still going strong
Phil Carpenter, married to Caroline. Phil helps me teach new dances and his guilty pleasure of choreographing new dances. Phil and Caroline also look after Wednesday evening classes whilst Roy and I have our holidays.
Phils doggie Reg joins us for our practice sessions on a Friday when we are trying out new dances
Last but not least, our classes are not the same without our Monty and Ella. They love the classes
and know who brings them a treat and then they sleep whilst we dance.
