Super nice dancing with Independence Matters at Harford Hill so interesting to hear your reminiscences, especially of dancing at the Samson and Hercules (where so many people met). I felt the joy of Jiving, your memories lifted me off my feet, spun me round and brought me there. Delighted you have invited me for a monthly visit and looking forward catching up !!

Rosie on dancing at Marion Road weekly with  Age Uk 2015-17 “…I love dancing with you all. Belly dance traditional music, sing-alongs, country and western and rock n’roll rocks!! Some fantastic moves from everyone, beautiful interpretations of music and hip rolls to aspire to! I am learning so much from you! : )”

A lovely eclectic group of fantastic movers and shakers ( and shimmiers) at Independence Matters, at Harford Hill and the Vauxhall Hub – Seniors and Charmers groups. We dance, reminisce and stretch our intellectual horizons!

Great fun working with NANSA bringing Belly Dance dance and World Folk to special needs adults. We also enjoy history and culture – compare and contrast and cultural context discussions. Love dancing with you all : )

Thank you to everyone at The Hamlet center, Ella Road, for a fun couple of days, we packed so much in, especially in the second session, amazing energy. You are an inspiration!!  : )

Thank you Ivy Lodge for a lovely session dancing with you in the garden.

Thank you everyone at the Willows Dementia Friendly Cafe, a lovely session, sadly cut short by tragic news which led to a supportive group discussion. So glad that the cafe is there to support in sad times as well as good. Hugs to all.

I will continue to support FoodCycle the first charity we ‘danced for’ if I host a catered event.

The next ‘Dancing For’ is  (TBC).
