Performers wear multiple hats. LSL: Aside from founding and running the Dubai Performing Arts Academy, I still tour with British pop group Steps and I’m a Fitness First and Adidas ambassador, while Johnny is a choreographer and creative director.  
There is no such thing as a typical day. We are fortunate that every day differs for us – from meetings to photo shoots to performing and teaching.
Broaden your horizons. We go to Ras Al Khaimah for family breaks with our kids, seven-year-old Jaden and five-year-old Star Lily. 
If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out and grab it! Professionally, we admire Richard Branson for his ambition, drive and business acumen. Plus, he seems like a good person.
Dirty Dancing is our favourite film. It inspired us both to have careers in the performance industry and (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life was the track for our first wedding dance. 

I trawl through this Dubai-based site that has great family-related tips.

Lisa’s an ambassador so needs to make sure she’s up-to-date on all their news.
