Over a decade of dance partnership for Rachel and Steve Brandreth, professional and friendly tutors from dancebespoke. Helping aspiring ballroom dancers achieve their goals from social dancers to competitors.
Rachel was a regional and national competitor, before becoming the dance teacher at Sandbach adult education in 2007 and taking her professional qualifications. As a regional competitor she was 2nd in the North West Young Masters and also won the Open Cheshire and Lancashire Pre-Championships.
Steve danced at international level, including a successful career representing England as a junior dancer, he was a UK finalist and World Semi-Finalist three years running. He first came to Sandbach School (during a break from competing) as Rachel’s friend to assist with an end of term demonstration that had been requested by the students. The couple fell in love during training (thanks Sandbach School xx) and Steve joined Rachel teaching classes after they got engaged in 2009. They then set up dancebespoke in 2010 before getting married in the July of that year.
Steve also undertook his professional qualifications and the couple had a baby in 2013. Following the arrival of their daughter, Rachel and Steve gave their final performance demonstration at Sandbach Town Hall for the Mayor’s Ball – a rumba to the same piece of music, performed as their very first demo together at Sandbach School. Rachel is currently taking a break from teaching, assisting now and then, but now leaving the fancy footwork to Steve as she manages the business from “behind the scenes”. Steve continues to teach courses in Ballroom, Latin, Argentine Tango and other current dance styles for The Link at Sandbach School.
