New for 2018

After some fun teaching Laban Bartenieff at MGA and re-training in Pilates with Brigid McCarthy this spring, I took a break over Easter to South Africa and Namibia. I couldn’t resist taking this photo:

I am currently making some changes on the website – the key change so far is that I will now be offering 1-1 and 1-2 private Pilates sessions at Moving Forth @ Out of the Blue, Leith and home visits too. You can now find a ‘Pilates‘ section of the website which includes information about my approach to Pilates, private sessions and the matwork classes I am teaching.

I am currently making an introductory offer:

LIMITED DATES ONLY: *25th June – 12th July* and *6th – 31st August*

1-1: Initial consultation (1hr) £35, follow-ups (1hr) £30 (usually £45 / £40)

1-2 (duet): Initial consultation (1hr) £25 per person, follow-ups (1hr) £20 per person (usually £35 / £30)

Autumn Update

This summer I enjoyed being part of the North Edinburgh Arts programme again and helping out at the Step it Up Summer Dance Camp. Following this I had a bit of break and saw some wonderful shows at the Fringe Festival including The South Afreakins (Impi Theatre), A Simple Space (Gravity and Other Myths), I am Rhythm (After Freedom).

This week, autumn term for most of my classes has begun! I will be teaching Pilates at Leith Academy on Wednesday evenings as usual and have also added classes at Craigentinny Community Centre on Thursday mornings. For booking:

As usual I will also be teaching the Inclusive Party Playlist at Dance Base and will be teaching half the term of Baby Steps – similar to the Belly Babies project in 2015. For this week and next week only, I will be covering Dance n Play for 18m – 3yrs on Wednesday mornings. I am also looking forward to running some curriculum dance workshops with Balgreen Primary School on the theme of anthems and the opening ceremony of the Olympics – I have many great ideas in development!


I will be using the second half of the funding I received earlier this year from the Rebecca Skelton Fund to attend the Body Mind Centering course in Ontogenetic Development in Edinburgh next weekend. Very much looking forward to this!

More to come soon as this shapes up to be another busy term!
