Certificirani Učitelj 5Ritmova
I completed the training with Gabrielle in 2001 and ran a weekly class in Newcastle upon Tyne and occasional workshops for more than 10 years while my daughters were growing up. At the same time I co-founded the Bare Toed Dance Company, specialists in creative movement for children, teaching and performing movement and aerial dance in the north east of England for almost 2 decades.

I am fascinated by the psychology underpinning dance and in 2012 I reduced my regular teaching to investigate this further, completing a BA in Education with Psychology and a Masters in Education at Durham University. In 2019 I began researching for a PhD in embodied learning. 

My research explores ways of embedding movement and physical awareness into classroom practices for both children and teachers in mainstream English primary schools. It is enabling me to draw together several different threads of interest: dance, working with children and academic research, and I am excited by the prospect of new opportunities it might bring.

I have continued to teach 5 Rhythms once a month with the Newcastle Dance Collective throughout my studies and am in the process of building my teaching practice. I currently teach classes in Newcastle, Cumbria, Darlington and Durham, including a weekly class for the student wellbeing service at Durham University and have plans for weekend workshops, intensives and ongoing groups.

My 5 Rhythms work draws strongly on neuroscience and a variety of creative disciplines - in longer workshops I often use paint, writing, music and other media. I also love to work in nature. I am particularly interested in levels of relationship, shadow work and supporting deep transformation through regular practice.
