From growing up in a pretty village in the Surrey countryside my love of dancing, and dance as an art form, has taken me on a fascinating and exciting journey of exploration and travels. I've danced through a thunder storm to hypnotic drum beats in the middle of Africa. I've danced on the fifteenth floor in a skyscaper in New York City. And I've danced by palm trees, on white sand, next to a turquoise sea in beautiful warm sunshine on a beach in Cuba. I'm not done yet. There's so much out there, so much more to discover and appreciate. Now, I'm taking my friends with me, collecting my tribe, suggesting diversions, following suggestions, eager and excited to expand and share the bliss we can create and experience together.

Dancing has taken me on an extremely enjoyable, interesting and exciting journey. However, I’ve also experienced some rather daunting set backs along the way.

I know what it feels like when you suddenly come across a good teacher and find out that you’ve been practicing and drilling into your body bad habits and bad technique for many years. I know how humiliating it feels if you have to go back to simple exercises and re-train in order to avoid injury and to finally start to make real progress.
I know what it feels like to fall in love with a type of music and a dance style and to be confronted by people telling you that you can never be good at this because you were not born in the right country and you don’t have the right body shape.
I’ve also experienced intense frustration searching for a club where I can dance socially and feel completely relaxed and at ease.
I’ve created Dance Diversion so that people like me can experience the abundance of joys and benefits that dancing has to offer without having to face the same struggles that I have. Dance Diversion is not for everyone… but it may be just what you are looking for.
