Dancing show ‘a dream’

Brad Coleman is teaching Marama Fox the foxtrot, among other dances, in Dancing with the Stars.

As well as Zac Franich and Roger Farrelly (HM May 2) Hibiscus Matters has discovered another local who is hitting the dance floor in the current series of Dancing with the Stars. Hibiscus Coast resident Brad Coleman says he is living his dream, as dance instructor and dance partner of Marama Fox on the show.

“I grew up watching Jonny Williams on the show, nine years ago and always wanted to be a part of it,” Brad says. “Now I get to dance alongside him and the other professionals. It really has been a dream come true.”

The ex-Whangaparaoa College student has been dancing for 13 years – starting with classes from Norma Wright in Silverdale. He then moved to Limelight dance studios on the North Shore where he currently learns and teaches.

He says he was best known for his sport at college. “I played plenty of sports and participated in the odd production or dance performance. I mainly played first 11 football for the college, and captained the team in my final year in 2013,” he says.

“Growing up on the Coast was amazing – people always supported my dancing and it’s just a great community to be part of.”
