Current status:

Lynn Harman is a former World Professional Latin American Champion and British Open Professional Ballroom Finalist. She is also one of the five founders and owners of the now world famous Dance Options Cheam, a dance studio located in Surrey, U.K.


Lynn Harman started dancing firstly through the medal test system, progressing to competitions at the tender age of 11.

With her partner, Peter Maxwell, she became a Triple Open British Junior Ballroom and Latin American Champion, winning her first title at the age of 13 (a record that has never been equaled). She continued on to become a Youth Ballroom and Latin American Champion by the age of 16 and at 22, won both the British Amateur Ballroom and Latin Championships and the World Latin Championship.

Having won all other major titles in both disciplines, in 1974, Lynn turned Professional.

Her professional achievements included representing Great Britain in the British Open Professional Team Match, becoming Champion of the World Cup 10 Dance Championships, becoming a finalist in the British Open Professional Ballroom Championship and winning the World and British Open Latin American Championships.

Following her very early retirement in 1979, Lynn has judged all major events, including the World and European Championships, and now concentrates on teaching others to follow in her footsteps. Having been the founder with her co-owners of the now world famous Dance Options Cheam, one of her proudest moments was the opening of the studio in 1993.
