I am a a relationship coach, a tango teacher and a creator of the live event Dance in Conversation. My work involves movement as a vehicle for personal growth, a way to help people to communicate and express themselves better. My approach stems from my own journey exploring body and mind connection through Tango.

For me tango is a gentle enquiry into your body, mind and soul that enables you to get to know yourself and in relation to the other.

At heart, I am a story-teller. For years I practiced journalism, writing daily news for the BBC. Dancing and intentional movement brings joy and focus to my life. Beyond techniques, I let my body tell its own stories. It’s something about it that brings me to myself and my center.

I am now a full time web developer and, as a creative writer and designer, I tell stories on the web, on paper, and sometimes I scribble random lines on the dance floor.

Together, we are crafting this space, making decisions based on feedback from the community around us.

We want to mention and give special credit to those who’ve been generous with their time and have provided invaluable support and advice all the way.

I love to dabble in dance, and have tried quite a few (tango of course, the queen of dances but perhaps the most challenging); salsa, zouk, bachacha, hula, samba, and even a little Japanese fan dance. In the good old days I used to travel lot, and tried to dance wherever I landed. Now I just have to imagine the dance, and really appreciate the help of my friends to keep me in step.
