A southside dance school which has been running long before ‘Strictly’ made dancing fashionable and trendy has reached its half century.

Deesdancing is a family run dance school which started life in 1966 on the southside of Glasgow.

And such has been the explosion in dance since programmes like ‘Strictly’ gave it a mainstream revival, that deesdancing have gone from strength to strength.

The business, which is run by Alan Dee and his son Derek have been offering lessons in ballroom and latin American dance, which includes, waltz, quickstep, social foxtrot, tango, cha-cha, jive and salsa.

There are classes for people of all ages and standards from beginners to advanced levels with both Alan and Derek being members of the International Dance Teacher’s Association as well as the Guild of Professional Dance Teachers.

And, with such a recent resurgance in dancing, Alan and Derek are offering personal tuition for those wanting to learn to dance for their wedding ceremony.

All classes are available for those with ou without a partner and no special attire is required to take part.
