Caroline Coomber School of Dance

Special award for John Cunningham

Recently, our main Dance Association, United Kingdom Alliance, held their 30th Highland Gathering at Dyce. A number of us attended the celebratory dinner, including John Cunningham, my dance teacher from when I was 10 years old, and his wife Isobel.

It was an extra special evening because John was presented with a very special award by David Roberts, Chief Executive of the UKA.

The certificate reads as follows:

United Kingdom Dance

It was a complete surprise to John and a very special moment for us all with a few tears.

I've said it before, none of us would be here in our present capacity as dancers if it wasn't for our wonderful John.
