Give us a twirl!!!

Just look at these delightful Deco dancers!!

I picked up this vintage photograph at the Giant Shepton Flea a couple of years ago.

This debonair duo were big hitters on the Amateur Dance scene of the 1930s.
On the back of the photo it lists the incredible list of competitions they won ...

Not only did Renée and John win honours in this country, but also European and International Championships, competing in Denmark and all over Germany.
AND, they danced for England!!

The photo can easily be dated to late 1936, as the list of prizes stops there. 
They were still winning European Championships right up to 1939.

There is even footage of them on YouTube!
