“What can I say? What a great weekend. We do shows all over the country but never have we had so much fun and met so many great people. I have to say Donaheys have done an amazing job organising the whole weekend, hope to be back soon!” James & Ola Jordan
In 2009, Ola Jordan was the well deserved winner of Strictly Come Dancing with her partner, Chris Hollins. Ola’s previous partners include Robbie Savage, Paul Daniels, Kenny Logan and DJ Spoony. In 2012 Ola partnered Eastenders star Sid Owen, and was crowned 2012 Christmas Champion with JLS star JB Gill.
Ola began dancing in her native Poland at the age of 10 and won the Polish Championship at 17. She then went on to the World Championships where she was placed in the top 12.
Within six months of meeting James they entered their first competition and after this amazing partnership was formed they went on to compete all over the world, winning many championships and becoming one of the top 12 dance couples in the world, also representing England in the World Championships.

James has proven himself to be an incredibly versatile teacher having been paired with a wide range of celebrities of various ages.
James’ talent for successfully matching the choreography with his partners’ abilities has resulted in exceptional dancing partnerships with Cherie Lunghi in 2007 and Pamela Stephenson in 2010 with whom he got through to the final. Previous partners include Alex Jones, Zoe Lucker, Georgina Bouzova and Gabby Lucker.
