Professional ice skater and presenter Dan Whiston has danced straight into the record books as the only pro skater to have won ITV’s Dancing On Ice title three times with his celebrity partners. Last night Dan’s partner, Olympic Bronze medallist, gymnast Beth Tweddle was presented with the trophy, and she follows in the footsteps of Dan’s previous celebrity partner winners – Gaynor Faye and Hayley Tamaddon. Dan has become a firm favourite on the show with a firm fanbase who continue to support him on the show and on the national tours.
Dan is also in demand on the corporate circuit as he can “skate” with specially designed bladed boots on most hard surface stages, which allow him to replicate exactly the same choreography as you would see him dance on ice. The effect is breath-taking and he can also combine his skating with aerial work or alternatively, he can be booked to dance alongside his celebrity partners or other professional ice dancers.
Dan won the first series of Dancing on Ice with actress Gaynor Faye, and partnered actress Emily Symons, Linda Lusardi and Roxanne Pallett before he went on to become Ice Champion again alongside actress Hayley Tamaddon in 2010. Daniel is represented by World Dance Management. An example of his “skating” performances on a normal stage can be seen on the World Dance Management website when he performed at The Royal Variety Show in 2010 click Dan Whiston performs on off ice skates.
