IN the early 1950s, Ernest Page and Dulcie Burton were Yorkshire Professional Dance Champions.

The couple taught ballroom dancing at Bradford venues including the Tudor Cafe Ballroom at Dudley Hill, the Gaiety Dance Hall and the Textile Hall in Westgate as well performing professional demonstrations throughout the North.

Music promoter and former DJ Garth Cawood sent us these lovely photos of Dulcie, his mother, and Ernest, his stepfather.

"Although they were champions, they entered professional dance competition at places like Blackpool Tower and other famous venues," says Garth. "I still meet people who remember either their parents being taught how to dance or themselves learning dance steps. I look back on this time with fondness of a golden era."
