Fred and Joan Dean, Editors of World Famous

they also helped originate the International regulations, by demonstrating the Ice Dance schedules in Switzerland,
to the authorities at the time.
They then went on to Produce the World-wide
Ice Skate Magazine for over 10 years......

We are now retired as competitors in the Ballroom and Latin Dancing competitions, Winning regularly, as shown by  cabinets full of Cups and trophies. In  their younger days, hanging off the edge of Sea Racing Catamarans,  collecting many Medals and Trophies on the way. A very full Lifetime, And now in later life, Fred has Sadly Passed On But Joan is still enjoying time in Borden in Kent and in Tenerife..
