I'm in the studio again and trying something new and different - wedding entertainment with fan veils! Last year I started learning to dance with fan veils and I really enjoyed it, but I didn't know how to incorporate it into my practice. Now, I'm beginning to have really fun creative ideas and so I'm trying things out in the studio. I think my choreography will be a beautiful and really flexible idea for wedding entertainment.


The photo is a still shot from filming my rehearsal. While the quality isn't all that, I think it still shows the movement and colours nicely.

The creative process is a beautiful journey. Rehearsal is a great space for creativity, experimentation, practice, discipline and hard work. I am happy to now present two exciting Flamenco dances that celebrate life. I can't wait to revive my very first choreography and to premiere a completely new piece in a wedding performance for Unika Dance Events next week.


Soon I will get a promo video filmed and I can't wait to share this with the world.

Yesterday we hosted another Kaleidoscopic Arts work in progress sharing at Centre 151 and I facilitated the feedback session after the performances.


Lily Horgan and Charlie Dunne (Meta4) showed 'Swiss army knife' and Katy Jane Higgins (TOBY) showed 'Episodic86'.


At our work in progress sharings choreographers present work they are currently developing to each other as well as their invitees and other interested contributors. The sharing is followed by feedback to inform the development of a new work or continuation of an existing work. With financial support by Kaleidoscopic Arts and in-kind support towards space hire thanks to the on-going support by Centre 151, the choreographers' financial contribution is kept to a minimum.


Centre 151 supports artists in many ways. Check them out, if you don't know them already: http://www.centre151.com/


I enjoyed the works and even more the constructive discussion afterwards. It's very exciting to partake in others' creative process, to get an insight and to have the opportunity to contribute one's own thoughts.

I have learnt dancing with fan veils since last year and am really enjoying the freedom and breadth it gives a dance.

It's a beautiful feeling and looks great. Traditionally used in belly dance, I use it for contemporary and lyrical dances.

Fan veils come in many different colours, my favourite ones right now are these multi-colour ones.

This picture was taken on the banks of the river Thames in Greenwich with a view of Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs in London.

Where has time gone?


In autumn last year I worked with Ensemble Perpetuo again. Is there a greater pleasure than performing and even rehearsing with live music? I was also very happy to continue developing "Grief".


Following a residency at ArtsDepot in North Finchley we shared our work in progress at Room Festival.

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.

Today the last rehearsal for Living with Sin took place. We have been working in welcoming, inspiring studios at GDA, Chisenhale and Siobhan Davies Studios. I could not have wished for a more excellent dancer. Kathy embodies the spirit of the piece and dances it beautifully! The costumes need some finishing touches and then it's performance time. Looking forward to Saturday!
