Gary has been involved in the UK linedance scene since 1996, initially as a dancer and then as an instructor since March 1997, running classes with his wife Marie.  Initially known as the “Kentucky Line Dancers”, the classes and events were officially re-branded as “The Linedance Club” at their 10th Anniversary Party in March 2007.

Gary is an internationally-renowned choreographer with many hit dances, including All Day Long for which he won the prestigious “Dance of The Year” award at the Linedancer Magazine Crystal Boot Awards in February 2006.  Gary’s first dance Queen Of My Heart was a worldwide hit, and more recent dances to prove popular include Feel The Magic , Ashes Of Love, Sin City Swing, and This & That.  

In January 2010, Gary  won the coveted “Dancer’s Choice” Award at the Crystal Boot Awards, and a third Crystal Boot was awarded in January 2011 for the category “DJ Of The Year”.

Gary is also one of the top Linedance DJ’s in Great Britain, working at most of the top events in UK including the Linedancer Magazine Crystal Boot Awards, MIL World Championships and CWDC European Championships.

Gary has taught at many places overseas including Sweden, Denmark, Florida & Hawaii as well as events across the entire United Kingdom.

In February 2012 Gary also taught for the first time in France, at the Mirande Linedance Festival.

As his DJ work expanded, Gary has moved with the digital age & created a software package specifically for linedance DJ’s & instructor’s.  The software is called LinedanceDJ and full details can be found on the LinedanceDJ page.
