Formby Gems Dance Troupe where original formed in 2005 by two friend Michelle Mawdsley and Laura Bibby. Michelle and Laura had both danced in the past for Southport Silhouettes and between them had over 27 years experience. With this they decided to start up their own troupe, bringing their love for dancing to and Formby Gems were born.
At the end of 2006 season Shelley came to dance for us, a former Southport Silhouettes dancer. She now helps Michelle with the running and training of Formby Gems between the pair of them they have over 30 years of dancing experience. Along with Michelle's experience of judging for orgainsation such as NEMDCO and NDTO, this equals a winning formula.
We would also love to hear from anyone who remembers the original Formby Gems, who we think disbanded around the late 70's, early 80's. Please conatct firstname.lastname@example.org
Formby Gems were a non-profit making organisation and any money which was raised or donated is put straight back into the troupe for uniforms and to pay for the practice hall as well as the general day to day running of the troupe.
