A Strictly St Peter's Girl

Mary Reynolds and Flavia Cacace
Flavia Cacace, the famous 'Strictly Come Dancing' dancer who is a champion tango dancer, recently visited her old school St Peter's in Guildford. She was welcomed by all and is seen in the picture with the Diocesan Director of Education, Mary Reynolds who has no dance ambitions herself but was pleased to welcome an old pupil back to the school and the diocese.

The BBC website tells us that "Flavia was born in Naples in Southern Italy, but moved to Guildford in Surrey with her family when she was four. Her mum Rosaria is a housewife, and her father Roberto is a retired chef. She started dancing at the age of 6 when she attended Saturday classes at a dance studio in Guildford.

Flavia took to dancing extremely quickly, and began to take the junior medals (known as Rosettes). At the age of 12, one of the teachers suggested that Flavia take part in competitions rather than continue with medals. Several years later, Flavia met Vincent (who had come over to England to find a partner), by pure coincidence as they were both having lessons from the same teacher.

Flavia and Vincent have been extremely successful on the competition circuit since starting to dance together thirteen years ago."

This year in 'Strictly Come Dancing' her partner is astrologer Russell Grant who presumably already knows how far they will get!!! Then again maybe not!
