In September 2005 Alistair and Melanie decided to move on to their next stage in their dancing careers. Their ambition to dedicate their time to dancing as well as to share their knowledge and experience in Latin American and Ballroom Dancing through teaching took them to England where they studied and sat for the B.A.T.D. Professional Associate examination. Both obtained excellent results in Latin American as well as Ballroom Dancing. Alistair believes that dancing is a lifelong learning process and therefore continued to study for the Member professional examination in both Latin American and Ballroom Dancing in which he obtained highly commended results. Later he went further in his studies and sat for the Fellow professional Latin American examination in which he also obtained excellent results. Together with their dancing experience and through the in depth studies done throughout the years, Alistair and Melanie established their school as one of the leading Latin American and Ballroom Dance Schools in Malta.
