February News

Ellen BartelThis month I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Bartel (Ellen Bartel Dance Collective, USA) in residence at Dance Base, Edinburgh. We worked on creating material and choreography using personal stories of life-changing events. It was really great week, thank you to all involved!

This month also sees the launch of Belly Babies, supported by the Communities and Families Fund (National Lottery), with Moving Forth, a dance/movement therapy charity based in Edinburgh. Roberta Beakbane and I will be leading weekly interactive and social dance sessions for parents/carers and babies at Leith Community Centre, North Edinburgh Arts, Wester Hailes Education Centre and The White House (Craigmillar). This is for families that fit two of the following criteria: experiencing/at risk of post-natal depression, receiving benefits or have low income, feeling isolated, non-confident english-speaker.
