I am a dancer, teacher and researcher from the UK where I was a founder member of CandoCo Dance Company and Crossover Intergenerational Dance. I have been a member of People Dancing, the British foundation for Community Dance for over twenty years and am passionate about developing participatory dance practices in the Netherlands.
I find movement and dance a powerful expression of who we are. Our bodies provide us with a rich palette of ways to communicate, freed from the limits of spoken language. I am interested in exploring the vocabulary of the dancing body and the creative process behind performance making. I am a performer, mover, dancer, observer.
