About Us

Graeme Hein-Jones

Graeme started learning Ballroom and Latin American dancing in 1975. He progressed on to competitive dancing with extra tuition from Strictly’s Len Goodman amongst other top dance instructors. In the early eighties he won the East of England Championship and made an appearance on BBCs Come Dancing. He retired from competitions after competing in the World Championships at the Royal Albert Hall and the British Open at Blackpool Tower Ballroom.


Over the last 20 years Graeme has been teaching Ballroom and Latin American dance in Cambridge. He firmly believes that the best way to learn to dance is to have fun and relax. His main priority when teaching is that everyone enjoys themselves. His dance partner, Sarah-Jane, has been helping him with teaching for several years and deals with all the admin-side of things. Together they have taught evening classes, demos at weddings/birthday parties and were invited to judge a Strictly competition in Alicante, Spain.
