DANCE teacher Gary Williams could not understand what all the fuss was about when the UK went crazy about journalist John Sargeant's exit from Strictly Come Dancing.

He was one of the few Britons in Majorca who had not heard about the uproar surrounding the programme and the treatment roly-poly John received from the show's judges - especially Gary's friend Arlene Phillips. “Although I know Arlene, I am much better acquainted with Vanda Rokicki, one of the original members of Hot Gossip,” explained Gary, whose dance school is based in Son Caliu, near Palmanova.

Arlene was the choreographer of Hot Gossip, the raunchy troupe that appeared on television in the 1980s and Gary worked with Vanda arranging dance sequences for the Hong Kong handover ceremony in 1997 and the Inspire Sports Festival in Qatar three years ago. “People just don't understand the amount of work that goes into dancing,” said Gary. “I do not teach ballroom or social dancing. Partnership dancing is artistic, but it is not something which I am qualified to do. “My forte is more performance dancing such as tap and ballet and that is what my students come to learn,” said Majorca's lord of the dance.
Gary's journey to becoming a highly-qualified instructor began at an early age at home in Denbigh, North Wales.
