Looking back, sport, dance, music, design and nature have always been a large part of how I live – together they make me happy! As a small girl I chose ponies before ballet; as a teenager I learned to play guitar and jived each weekend away.
I gained a Dip AD in Fashion & Textiles from Birmingham Art College. Always athletic but too old to compete, I trained with the Olympic gymnastics team there, and was a disco dancer.
In Cheltenham with a family, I learnt Graham Technique from an ex-Rambert dancer, unfortunately for only a year. Ten years later an excellent Jazz Jive class started – great fun and I regret not qualifying to teach! I became a primary teacher, and choreographed many groups of girlsand boys to take part in the annual Dance Festival.
I now live in rural Wiltshire, go to Pilates and art classes, am a grandmother and Cathedral guide, and I’M DANCING AGAIN!
