Alison and Peter have choreographed and introduced many crowd-pleasing dances to the line dance community all over the world; these include Destination Dancefloor, A Cowboy and a Dancer, Passport to Party, Shenanigans, Catch The Rain, Come Into My World, Irresistible, In-VINCE-ible, Everywhere, Romantasy, El Rio Amor, Holding Back The Ocean and Pirates of Dance, to name but a few! The list just goes on and on………….
In 2003, Alison had the pleasure of being nominated in 6 categories for the Linedancer Crystal Boot Awards: UK Instructor of the Year, Female Personality of the Year and Rising Star along with 3 dance nominations. 2004 brought in nominations for Female Personality and in the Intermediate dance category, her dance Bad Moon On The Rise was put forward along with two other dances going by the names of Romantasy and Round Round Baby. In 2005 Alison’s’ nominations for the Crystal Boot Awards were awarded for Female Personality of the Year, UK Instructor of the Year and UK Choreographer of the Year and in 2006 came nominations for UK Instructor of the Year and also TheDanceFactoryUK’s dance Bridge Over Troubled Water had a nomination in the Intermediate Dance of the Year category.
Peter is the recipient of 5 International Choreographer of the Year Awards; 3 for International Instructor of the Year and at the 2004 Crystal Boot Awards came his induction into the Linedancer Magazine Hall of Fame, given to only a handful of talented individuals within the line dance community. His Crystal Boots for choreography were awarded in 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2002 with his last and final win coming in 2003. In 2004 Peter was given his first Lifetime Achievement Award for winning 5 successive International choreography awards. Unfortunately, he can no longer qualify in this category; the wins are limited to 5. Peter’s International Instructor of the Year Crystal Boot Awards were awarded in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006 and at this years' Linedancer Crystal Boot Awards, 2007 he was given his 2nd Lifetime Achievement Award as he has now won 5 boots in this category. So now Peter has 5 boots for International Choreographer of the Year and 5 boots for International Instructor of the Year and 2 outstanding Achievement Awards, quite the record!
Again in 2005 their came nominations for two dances choreographed by Peter & Alison, one for Push The Button as Intermediate Dance of the Year, it reached the final 6 in this category, and Pirates of Dance for Advanced Dance of the Year. They were lucky to be the recipients of two Crystal Boots, Peter for International Instructor of the Year and together for the first time in their history of dance came their first choreography award for Pirates of Dance and their dance was awarded the Linedancer Crystal Boot for Advanced Dance of the Year.
In November 2005 & 2006 Alison and Peter were also the lucky recipients of the Team Choreography Award at the Inaugural Dancers’ Choice Awards held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
