April & May 2020 Welcome to my Blog and this comes at a sad time indeed for the Sacred / Circle / Traditional Dance community globally due to the Covid-19 situation.

As the flowers start to poke through the soil, it is clear that the sun is staying with us a little bit longer. We have been having all the seasons here in the Highlands, I seem to be prepared with hats, umbrellas and thermals at the ready.

It has been a great start to the new year at the Tuesday night dance group here in Findhorn. We started the year with some dances led by different Findhorn based teachers and I taught Zacharoula a Greek/Vlach dance which I love.

September 2019 I’ve had an interesting few weeks and my dance workshop is suddenly coming together. Writing all the dance notation out and putting them together is a new thing for me. My time has suddenly opened to play more with the workshop concepts, and boy I’m enjoying that side of it. The creativity to be had … Continue reading Edinburgh Dancing with Our Wullie!
I remember at a very young age being lined up in a gymnasium at my primary school paralysed by fear of connecting with others. This was Scottish Dance in a rough Scottish neighborhood in Edinburgh. Although I was last to be picked (mmm still have that feeling inside lol) I remember enjoying it and the … Continue reading The Fall from the Shortbread tin!
The 2019 Sacred Dance Festival ended on Saturday after a week of dancing with 75+ people in the Universal Hall in our ECO village community.
