Our Lead Pros

Ole Burlay (DVIDA)

Olé holds the record as six-time undefeated champion in the Amateur Championship in the Ukraine for Ballroom dance. He was also a finalist at the Open European Professional Ballroom Championships and of the Open Canadian Latin Championships. Upon starting his career in Canada, he quickly rose to the top of the Pro-Am world of dancing, becoming the Arthur Murray champion in both styles of international Latin and American Smooth. He is recognized on the dance floor for his constant smile and graciousness. For 6 consecutive years he has received the award for top teacher at the Crystal Leaf International Dancesport Championship and he is consistently one of the top 10 teachers at the prestigious Ballroom dance competition La Classique. He has also been the top teacher finalist Dancesport Series 2016 and 2017. Olé will be our lead teacher on this cruise to the Fjords Cruise and the  Mediterranean cruise starting April 8, 2019 in Monte Carlo. He will coordinate the dance pros for this cruise and we are confident that if you have not already been won over by his charm and teaching style, this cruise will win you over.

James Prouton (LISTD, LNATD)

We welcome James to our dance team. He plans to walk from home to the Queen Mary 2 dock in Southampton. James began his dancing career at the age of 2½, all thanks to Top of the Pops and Adam Ant! After perfecting the routine to ‘Prince Charming’, his parents, recognizing his talent, enrolled him in local dancing classes. He studied tap, ballet and jazz as well as ballroom and Latin up until he was 9 years of age, when he started to compete in ballroom competitions. James quickly established himself amongst the top ballroom dancers in the UK, winning a string of juvenile and junior titles. As a competitive adult ballroom dancer he established himself as one of the UK’s top amateurs, regularly finishing in the top 6 in England and in the quarter finals of most international championships. He ranked as the UK Ten dance champion and was very privileged to represent England at the World Championships where he finished 9th. In 2004, James decided to turn professional and took 3 years away from competitive dancing to concentrate on teaching – and to find the right person with which to start a new chapter in his dancing career.  Over the years, his dancing has become his number one passion and we can’t imagine anyone better to join our Passion to Dance cruises. Don’t be fooled by all those titles, James is a charming and proficient social dancer.
