My journey of dance started at the age of ten when I attended two stage schools, Bush Davies, East Grinstead & Elmhurst Ballet School, Camberley. At the age of seventeen I auditioned for The Place, London School of Contemporary dance. Being one of four chosen from eighty people auditioning I felt pretty confident, however at that audition they found I had a back problem that I had no idea about. After further examinations I was told I couldn’t continue with my dance career.
This was earth shattering news for me but I knew I had to explore different ways of moving & developing my skills.
I pursued a creative dance training with Caroline Born using the Anna Halprin method.
I’ve also explored Authentic Movement, Contact improvisation, Rebirthing, Creative writing, among many other creative art forms. I’ve travelled to Guatemala to train in Trance Dance ( a blend of dance, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms) & I’m an organiser of the yearly event Dance Camp Spain. I’ve been running courses in Spain & U.K for thirty years & have created my own unique fusion of movement, embodiment, creative writing & art to help lead participants into a deeper & more profound understanding of themselves & others.
Dance is my healing journey & life work. Dance is for all people, dance transforms lives!
