A little about Val:
My name is Val Myers, a retired university lecturer from Harrow in Middlesex. I am married to Sandie. We have a son, a daughter and three grandsons.
We started linedancing in 1994 and dance at least four times a week. I am qualified as a linedance teacher, completing the BWDA exams in 2001 and the UKA exams in 2002. I have been teaching classes at all levels for many years and I have a special interest in teaching and learning for beginners and improvers.
I also choreograph dances, many of which have been published. I am particularly proud of "SIMPLY MAMBO" (choreographed jointly with Deana Randle) which won the prestigious Linedancer Magazine Crystal Boot Award in 2007.
I have developed a detailed syllabus for absolute beginners and beginners which gradually introduces steps and moves, whilst allowing for flexibility. This includes a series of specially choreographed dances or exercises called the "A - B" series as well as other specially designed dances.
