Steve "2Rock" lives and breathes acrobatic rock 'n' roll. He began teaching the sport in 1991 as a qualified coach in Slovakia, training couples ranging from beginners to finalists of World and European Cups. Following a move to the UK, Steve started coaching the Cambridge University Acrobatic Rock 'n' Roll team in 2009 and has run his own club, 2Rock, based in London. In addition to coaching, Steve has a wealth of dancing experience. As a World Cup quarter-finalist, he has performed and competed in over 10 countries, representing Slovakia and later the UK with his partner Laura. He thoroughly enjoys embedding Slavic tracks to warm-ups and rocking away.
Laura graduated with a Mathematics degree from the University of Cambridge in 2006. It was during her undergraduate studies that she joined the Cambridge University Acrobatic Rock ’n’ Roll team in 2005. Three years later, Laura established a partnership with Steve which led to many international competitions, stage performances and even the occasional TV appearance. Since 2011, they have jointly been involved with coaching for the university team, albeit with their different teaching styles! Outside of rock ’n’ roll dancing, Laura is currently in the final year of a PhD in Applied Mathematics.
STEVE AND LAURA'S ROUTINE
Steve and Laura have been dancing together since the end of 2008 and have competed widely across Europe in acrobatic Rock 'n' Roll European Cups (B Class).
The routine shown is an adaption of their competitive acrobatic routine, to the track 'S.O.S' by Stratovarius.
