No one is quite sure how long Queens Ice Dance Club (QIDC) has been around, but there’s certainly been ice dancing at QUEENS for more than half a century. From the 1950s through to the 1970s produced top skaters, many of whom went on to become British, European, World and Olympic champions.
The roll of honour includes such names as Courtney Jones, June Markham, Doreen Denny, John Curry, Robin Cousins, Sally Stapleford, Diane Towler, Bernard Ford, & John & Jennifer Nicks – the list goes on. All coached at some stage in their careers by the late Gladys Hogg MBE, who began coaching at QUEENS from the day it opened in 1930 until her retirement in 1984.
Dance Club meets every week and aims to encourage skilled dance as a recreational sport. With a vast range of dances – from novice to junior through to intermediate and senior – QIDC will always welcome new members with a minimum entry of novice and junior standards.
