Darren and Lilia are the most successful competitive couple of their generation, winning 4 British Amateur Championships, 3 UK Championships and representing Great Britain at the World and European Championships. Turning professional in 2003, they won the British National Professional Championship two years running and made the final of the World and European Championships.
In 2009, they embarked on a very different project, their very own West End show “Latin Fever”. Running for 5 weeks in the heart of the West End, it thrilled audiences throughout, giving Darren and Lilia the opportunity to direct and choreograph.
After a sell-out show in London’s West End, Darren and Lilia brought Latin Fever to a wider audience with their first UK wide tour in 2010.
Today, they travel the world as Creative Directors and Choreographers for different versions of Dancing With The Stars, currently Darren is Creative Director and Lilia is Head Choreographer of the Irish version of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ which airs on RTE,
