My interest is in the dance, particularly in the art of dance improvisation. I love to know how the body is put together so experiential anatomy can often play a part in my teaching. I have been dancing and exploring dance improvisation for more than 20 years. I started from a very limited place so I know what is possible if we give ourselves space and time to nurture both our body and and our dance. When we actually listen to what is inside we find a movement towards growth and wholeness that leads us quite simply into the dance.


I love my life and make my living through teaching dance improvisation and giving body work sessions in Somatic Thai Massage. So my work is about helping people create more possibility  and friendliness in there bodies.


I am 48 years old and share my life and my work with my partner Lee. We often teach our CI and Embodied Presence work together. I am currently sight impaired and have been for much of my life so this plays a significant role in the way my life and work have unfolded. So I have found my way into being a part of Touchdown Dance  there are 5 of us some sighted some less so who practice contact improvisation as our basic movement language together.

I work with movement and dance as an enquiry into the present moment.  Fascinated by dance as a metaphor for life I have used Contact Improvisation, somatic movement, non-stylised movement and self enquiry as a vehicle to explore on the dance floor life, with freshness moment to moment.


I have been dancing for more than 10 years.  When I first discovered dance it led me to places I had buried, contorted places I pushed away not wanting to feel or face.  It has been a long long journey discovering just how far away from myself I have lived.  Every dance, every movement session is an invitation to myself to find and meet a little more of myself.  To bring more of me to taste more of the world.  To breath more fully and to move from the inside and meet the world with interest and curiosity.  This is my invitation to you.
