Lucidez Dance Logo Version the one Bernie made me

One year ago I started thinking of a new work with the working title 'grief' and since then it's developed beautifully. You can still follow the development on Twitter, by searching the hashtag #wtgrief. After lots of research and gathering inspiration and a few rehearsals, I joined Ensemble Perpetuo in a one-day residency and together we worked on ways to truly create a new concert experience by including dance in a chamber music concert.


Since then I have developed choreography which has now been presented during the most recent Blue Cloud Scratch Night on Friday, 21st July.


It was a very valuable experience as you get to perform your work while still in development and then receive feedback from your audience, which you can use to inform the continued development of your work.


I'm very grateful for the opportunity to create this work and for the support of Ensemble Perpetuo, Cloud Dance Festival and Blue Elephant Theatre.

Maya Pindar was one of the five reviewers who attended the fourth Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform last month. It was our most successful platform yet and we couldn't be happier! You can see impressions from the platform on our Facebook page.


I was very happy to have the opportunity to show 'Living with Sin' again and to receive valuable audience feedback, footage and reviews. Five reviewers attended the showcase, among them Tia Asterope and Maya Pindar. You can read their reviews following the links below.

The 4th Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform will take place on May 19th! It is once again part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe. We've been successful in securing funding from the Wandsworth Arts Council and we're embarking on a Crowdfunder campaign in April.


We will showcase choreography by Helen Cox, Jayne Port and Feet off the Ground Dance and also my work 'Living with Sin' will be on again.


There will also be a photography exhibition curated and co-created by Elisabeth Schilling.


Find all information and buy tickets on www.kaleidoscopic-arts.co.uk/fourth-platform


Join us for an informal and intimate night where you can be close to the dance and gain deeper insight into the artistic process.

After performing with Unika Dance Events in early February, I’ve come to Sevilla for a month of intensive Flamenco.


I notice that the relative calmness and loneliness I feel here are good for my creativity and #wtgrief keeps developing slowly but surely.


In other news our bid to funding from the Wandsworth Arts Council for the fourth Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform has been successful,

so save the date: May 19th!

My time in Santiago and Latin America has come to an end with a last incredible trip to Panama and Colombia.


Back in London I performed a Samba show for Unika Dance Events for New Year’s Eve and defined my goals for 2017.


I’m an Equity member now and look forwards to taking class, performing and taking Kaleidscopic Arts to the next, funded level!


Happpy New Year!

Last week Margarita Gómez and I used the dramatic light and lovely location of Café Berlín in Santiago to film material for a new work with the working title "Berlin". What does 'home' mean to you?


A few days later, again at Café Berlín, I performed "Berliner Lieder", improvisations to songs about Berlin, as part of "100 en 1 día" Festival Santiago.


Thank you to Margarita and Cristobal Koch of Café Berlín.

Had a most wonderful time dancing in the gala "Duende" de Embrujo Academia de Baile.


It is a great fortune to have good teachers and I am so lucky to have embarked on the Flamenco journey with two wonderful teachers, Liza Fernández and Claudia Acosta, who are not just lovely, wise and patient teachers, but also powerful, gorgeous, intensive dancers who inspire me to work hard and set free the duende inside!

Can't express how happy I am to have finally begun learning this most wonderful dance thanks to Embrujo Academia de Baile. Starting with a performance in honour of International Women's Day just made the whole experience even more exciting. After a week of rehearsals, it's now back to regular class and learning technique.
