Linda McLean, who runs Dance In Step was delighted that Tomas was able to take the workshop.

She said: “I was delighted to be able to offer my students the opportunity to take a class with such an accomplished dancer/choreographer.

“It was a great experience to learn a style which is quite different to what we do normally.

“Tomas is a great teacher and definitely pushed everyone in terms of their ability but I think everyone gained something from taking the classes.”

She added: “I think it’s really important for everyone to experience different style of dance and learn from different teachers as well as see the level of skill and dedication that is involved in being a professional dancer so this is definitely something we will do gain in the future.”
