It is New Year’s Eve, so time once again to look back on the year and take stock before ringing in 2015… A useful exercise!

A year of performing, testing my limits as a “mature“ dancer, at a time when there seems to be gradually increasing interest in older performers. Two old instruments, my collaboration with viola da gamba player Jonathan Rees, was paired with Dances, Oracles, Mysteries devised and performed by artists of Barefoot Opera in the double bill Visible Music for a mini tour of performances in Bristol, Shoreditch and Oxford at the end of April. Subsequently Jonathan and I also performed twice in the welcoming setting of St Helen’s Central Library in May.  Response has been most positive and we already have a further performance of this adaptable piece confirmed for another library, this time in the intimate studio space of state-of-the-art The Hive in Worcester on 7th February. You can find full information about this project here. Read More

Tomorrow Saturday 13th December sees the last two ballet classes of this term and indeed this year at URC. I will then be taking a break over the Christmas and New Year period. Ballet classes at URC will resume as per normal schedule from Monday 12th January 2015.
If I don’t see you tomorrow for a final festive fling, here’s wishing you a very merry Christmas and all good things in 2015!
