Strictly star drops in
STRICTLY Come Dancing star Katya Jones dropped into a Staple Hill dance studio to hold workshops for more than 100 eager students.
The Russian-born professional dancer, who has appeared on five series of the hit BBC show, and won the 2017 series when paired with actor Joe McFadden, visited RedX Dance Studio in Page Road with West End musical actor Sahsa Latoya in June.
Katya ran sessions for dancers from eight year olds to adults, teaching them a high-energy street dance routine as seen on Strictly, before holding question and answer sessions for each group.
RedX Dance is run by sisters Gaby and Jasmine and Sorisi-Thomas, who founded the studio in 2012, when they were still in their teens.
They said: "Everyone loved having Katya come to the studio – it was a lovely end to Lockdown."
