I've been dancing 5Rhythms since 2003, and have been an accredited teacher since 2011. In 5Rhythms I found a practice where I could dance myself inside out, where I could express and accept my dark, wild and tender self.
In my very first 5 Rhythms dance in 2003, I was filled with an ecstatic vision of my dancing right up to the moment of my physical death. As a teacher and dancer I'm drawn to explore ways of dancing that embodies this wild spirit, whilst honouring the physical truth of how the body ages and changes with time. I live in an urban village on the edge of Bradford city centre, and I teach classes and day workshops in Bradford, Leeds, Manchester and elsewhere.
I love the poetry of Rumi and Mary Oliver, I've been dancing to Patti Smith for most of my life, and relax by sitting and watching beetles and bees with my back against a tree.
