Meet Howard

Fire House Dance was founded in 2009 by Howard Bullock (originally Partnersdance) and has run dance classes in Skipton, Ilkley and Craven for nearly a decade including at local Primary schools and events.

Howard has enjoyed an exciting career as a professional dancer, production manager and choreographer. Howard performed both theatre dance and Latin American and Ballroom styles and his career has taken him dancing all over the world. He now holds fellowship status with the International Dance Teachers Association.

“I opened the school a few years ago because I wanted to teach people to dance. I wanted to pass on my knowledge and love of Latin American and Ballroom dance and run a school that meant others could benefit from the enjoyment and satisfaction that dance has given me.

It doesn’t matter if you want to learn a few steps or go on to compete, dance is there to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age, gender or circumstance. And remember… You are never too old to start!”
