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.

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!
