How long have you been teaching dance?
What’s your favourite Polestar dance class?
Probably like every girl who enjoys dancing I watched “Dirty Dancing” a gazillion times when I was little. “Dirty Dancing” is my favourite party because of my ballroom and latin background, it has amazing music and brings great memories of the film.
What is your main/side gig?
I run a production company that makes animations and videos www.alinap.co.uk: anything from corporate explainer animations to music videos. Recently the company branched out into a wedding video company called White Balloon Films: www.whiteballoonfilms.
Best part of the job?
The best part of the job is when the participants start realising they can dance. Every girl has the ability to dance, it’s just not everyone knows about it!Dancing with the girls or your partner? Definitely both! I love the independence and energy of Street dance and also partnership in Latin dances being led and being intuitive.
What’s your favourite style of dance?
I absolutely love Argentine Tango and also Hip Hop having trained for it in London for 7 years before moving to Glasgow.
Genre of Music?
I’m open to all sorts. I like a bit of everything but I’d say Hip Hop is one that makes me want to dance and party.
Who’s the better dancer, Beyonce or Lady Gaga?
Both are amazing but Beyonce has great energy!
