I am fortunate to have grown up as a dancer.

Being in touch with the creativity, connectivity, discipline, healing and strength that comes from within our own bodies is something that I am learning to appreciate ever more greatly with the passage of time.

Having worked as a dancer, creator and educator for twenty-something years, I am still learning to find my feet.

I hope you enjoy reading and I would be happy to hear from you if you have any comments or questions…
