My dancing is about release of the whole rainbow of emotions, body sensations, feeling inconquerable and tiny like a white pompom hedgehock curled up. It's a wonderful mix, including my physical body, allowing what's happening in that body, during the dance and let it go. No getting stuck in an emotion, due to the motion. Life is about motion, always, never a dull moment ;)

I am in the process of setting up Shamanic Trance Dance sessions here in Totnes.

A dynamic djembe player would be amazing to work with.  Anyone interested with experience of trance work please get in touch.  I would love to collaborate with like minded others.

Hello all,

I am beginning a sound project- collecting people's experiences, stories and reflections on dance and movement. I hope to montage these together with poetry and song....creating a piece which reflects on why human's dance? What it is we seek....and what we find.

There is potential for this to be broadcast on Soundart FM (the Totnes based community & arts radio statio ) with the hope to give space the community to 'move and be moved'- opening up some of the interesting discussions I've seen within this group into an audio medium. 

If this is something you'd like to be a part of give me a call on 0781 339 1294 and we arrange a chat. Also, if you run dance events and would be happy to spread the word/ for me to be there to record afterwards please get in touch. As for my background,I'm a dancer and anthropologist and am new to the area so am looking forward to meeting some fellow dancers and sharing experiences!

With love and light,

Alice x

thanks Adam - I am teaching a weekend in Devon at the end of March - is the Deep Dive Dance Facebook page a suitable place to give information about that?  And also is THIS a suitable place to post the info on? Joanna x

The Thank You Song

Aaaaah! Thank you so much! One small step for Annie and potentially one big step for humanity.... if only I'd managed to get the link in properly.

Robert: if you can bear it, perhaps a (paid) one to one session at some point. My computer crashed last Thursday so I'm still on recovery!
