Lynn Miller
Co-Director & Partner of Miller Dance Studios. M.I.D.T.A. Ballroom & Latin

Fellow U.K.A.P.T.D.

Lynn took her first dancing steps at the age of 5 attending Ballroom & Latin dance classes at a local dance school close to where she was living. After being truly bitten by the dancing bug, Lynn, a few years later, took up disco dance lessons amongst others but eventually took her dance exams in her original love of Ballroom & Latin.

After teaming up with Richard a while later, they travelled together extensively, learning from the best and entering semi-pro competitions. After a very successful rise to the top of both the East Anglian and European scene, with numerous trophies to boot, Lynn and Richard soon decided to start their own dance studio with the intention of introducing youngsters a new and exciting hobby.

Lynn loves working with the children and seeing them grow and expand with confidence. She is great a putting people at ease and is very much at home teaching both newcomers with zero experience to somebody who is very serious about achieving their ultimate goal and competing.

Lynn is also a very proud mum and puts many hours of hard work into helping their son, Luke, achieve his dream as a professional dancer - one dream that we all think is well and truly on its way to being completed. As Lynn and Richard have said, “we are extremely proud of our son and his achievements, both as a dancer and as a man”.

Luke Miller
Partner & full time teacher at Miller Dance Studios

Can you imagine having a World Champion teaching you?

What an opportunity!

Luke Miller is a competitive dancer and a former U16 British and World Ballroom and Latin Champion.  In 2014 at the British Nationals and with his partner, Laura Robinson, Luke became the British number two U21 Latin Champion - an amazing achievement considering these exciting and fastest rising Latin stars had only been dancing together for six months. Luke and Laura are also currently placed 5th in the World.

Like his parents, Luke began his career at the age of 5 and since then his passion for Ballroom and Latin dancing has taken him from one stage to another including giving demonstrations for various dance schools and organizations in the UK and Worldwide.  At a very young age, Luke even appeared on TV shows like Britain´s Got Talent and the ever so popular dance show, Strictly Come Dancing!

When he is not competing, Luke is a dedicated dance instructor here at Team Miller and on the UEA Dance Sport circuit - and if that’s not enough he is also a qualified Fit-Steps instructor - a new dance class combining Latin dancing with cardio-vascular exercises.
