I can't believe this was us 7 years ago.

Amazing to watch all these years later.  We really did have the wildest ride of our lives as a community of dancers who just loved to meet up in the evenings and tap with friends.  A once in a lifetime experience thanks to Mr Taps himself, Drew Wood. The man who had a hand in such a radical change in my life. After BGT he decided to hang up his teaching shoes and entrusted me to take on the shiny baton and Ducky Shincrackers was born.
I am excited to say that having successfully set up and run a full programme of classes in Brighton and having had the joy of teaching so many new and improving adult dancers it is time to expand into new Cities across the UK.
