“Our passion for dancing goes into each and every lesson. Teaching others how to do it is a genuine
pleasure and extremely gratifying.”

About Darren

Darren took up dancing at the age of seven. He competed as a juvenile, junior and amateur, and by the age of 23 was ranked as one of the top 24 dancers in the UK. He danced on the Ystrad Fawr Formation Teams for 14 years, during which time they won the British Formation Championships on four occasions, and consistently ranked amongst the top twelve in the World.

Darren has danced in a number of TV programmes and several films, appearing in Come Dancing, The Generation Game, Children in Need, and in the BBC series Torchwood, with Lucilla.

About Lucilla

Lucilla fell in love with dancing when she was 15. Once she got to university she danced on the Cardiff University Dance Team for many years, and was President and Captain of the club during her time there. In 2002 she started dancing with Darren and in 2003 they won every university competition in their team dance, becoming the 2003 National Inter-Varsity Champions and securing an historic three-way tie for first place for Cardiff University Dance Team.

Soon after this she and Darren turned professional and set up Saturn Dance in 2007.

“If you’re nervous about starting to dance, don’t let it stop you. We have classes to cater for all types of abilities so you never feel out of place.

Come along, you’ll learn something new and have a great time too!”
