After discovering dance in my early teens I became an obsessive throwing all else overboard. I worked with Margaret Lasica and and Bob Thornycroft. Then I moved to New York. To dance, I thought, but upon discovering the music and performance art scene of the 1980”s I dropped dance like a hot potato and threw myself into that world. Thirty years later I went back to class and rediscovered improv. It was like finding that favourite coat you thought you’d lost and wrapping yourself in its warmth.
