I have always loved dance!
I owe everything to my mum for these early dance classes and for always seeking out visiting dance companies to go and watch together. This passion - for both participating and spectating – has been life-long. I have been fortunate to have received instruction in Medau Movement from some wonderfully talented teachers over the years and have seen many dance companies perform. This has resulted in a large collection of programmes begun in childhood providing me with a personal library of some really memorable and exciting performances!
Several years ago, I was introduced to Circle Dance and was struck by the many contrasts I discovered within this dance form – from the gentle and reflective to the more energetic, sometimes even within one dance! I was also fascinated by the background to the dances and loved the variety of music we danced to.
I was delighted therefore, to be given the opportunity to begin teaching Circle Dance, assisted again, by some wonderful and supportive teachers, other ‘trainees’ and a very patient group of volunteers on whom we could try out our newly acquired skills!
Meeting up with Kate Daly (whose love of dance was instantly noted) has given us a great opportunity to re-introduce Circle Dance to Edinburgh. Our classes are friendly and informal (no experience necessary) and we invite you to come along and give them a try!
