Entering her first dance competition at the age of four with Kevin. The pair were taught by their parents Keith and Judy, former International Latin Champions, at their dance school, Clifton’s Dance Academy. At 15 the siblings were forced to part as Jo pursued her dancing career in Italy with Europe’s biggest dance school: Team Diablo.
Joanne has competed in both Ballroom and Latin for over 26 years now and in 2014, joined her brother as a dancer on Burn the Floor. Finally they’ll dance together on Strictly, but it won’t be for the first time… In 2013, Jo appeared on the show as an extra dancer in some of the professional group dances. (You may have spotted her on stage with her whole family at Blackpool for the group routine)
