Meet Brandon Stanley

Ballroom dance instructor

Brandon Stanley

I am an experienced and devoted Ballroom and Latin dance teacher, choreographer and competitor. Over my 15 year career I have accomplished many achievements including:

British National Champion

European Vice-Champion

World Finalist

During this time I have learnt not only the nuances of the techniques of dancing but also how to deliver this in a truly enjoyable and interesting way, in order to provide an unforgettable experience for the partakers, no matter what level or purpose.

For the last 5 years of my competitive career I decided to specialise in Ballroom as that is truly where my talents lie. I have had the fortune to work with the very best in the industry to master the techniques of the ballroom genre. People often ask what my favourite dance is but I love having the range of dances and characters to choose from; from the intense and passionate tango to the lively and exciting quickstep, they are all so good!!

Although specialising in Ballroom I have had the opportunity to learn Latin American for 10 plus years again from the very best teachers in our industry and performed on a global stage. Although I chose to specialise in Ballroom I really did love to dance latin especially the rumba and Paso Doble!! 

Previous to my move to Dubai, I have taught all ages and abilities from beginners to world champions, whether it be a wedding dance or a dance competition, I am a good choice for your dancing journey.

Now I am with the esteemed team at Palais de Danse, I will continue to grow my knowledge and expand on the ranges of dance genres to encompass Argentinian Tango, Salsa and American smooth.

Dance classes I teach at dance studio Palais de Danse are: 

  • Beginner Standard Ballroom dance style

  • The technique of the Standard Ballroom dance style
