About us

We are a Ballroom and Latin American dance school resident in Basingstoke (Hampshire) and Camberley (Surrey) offering dance classes from Beginners to Advanced, Children to Adults, Social Dancing, and Private Lessons.


Our school is affiliated with the prestigious ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing​and twice a year we offer you the opportunity to take medal exams.  If you would like to take your dancing even further you can compete with us at the ISTD Medallist Competitions and also Pro-Am Championships.


Managed by two very experienced professionals, Freedom 2 Dance is simply the best choice for Ballroom Dancing in Hampshire.

The Principal Teachers




Jonathan started dancing before he could walk.  With +30 years of dancing experience, he knows every corner of his business.​


While a Junior, Amateur, and Professional, Jonathan has competed in Ballroom and Latin-American styles with different partnerships and has won many titles in the UK and abroad.


After taking his professional qualifications within the ISTD, Jonathan has been enjoying a very successful career as a teacher. 

Jonathan has also an eye and talent for dance couture and our students have the privilege to get costume-made dresses whose standards are very well known in the competitive field.  Check out our Freedom 2 Dance Design brand.




​Qualified with the ISTD and the IDTA,  Sergio has extensive experience working with people from all backgrounds.

In 2008, he moved to the UK to pursue his competitive career and become a full-time dance professional and teacher. His focus is on excellent technique, emotional connection with the music, and of course, having fun along the way. 

Sergio is currently in California, USA studying American Smooth and American Rhythm and will occasionally visit the studio for some coaching.

Together they competed not only in Same-Sex events but were also the first and only all-male couple to participate in Professional events, challenging the notion that a couple needs to be consistent by a male and a female.


As they explored the dynamics of leading and following, it felt only right to move on to the Professional field together, where they had competed for many years.  After all, if our society has developed to accept all sorts of partnerships why should dancing be any different? 


They have enjoyed competing together at the most prestigious events in the UK, including the British Open which every year summons thousands of dancers from across the world.
