INSTRUCTOR

MARGARET CHAPMAN

Maggie was 29 before she ever stepped inside a dancing school - a late starter! She went to a beginners class at the Arlington Ballroom in Museum Street, Ipswich. Maggie was soon totally hooked and within a year she was having private lessons, had taken her first exams, entered her first competitions (which she won) and was assisting at classes.
