Introduced to English Country Dancing by Vic and Brenda Godrich, she began dancing at Thursday Beginners and has subsequently sought to make up for lost time by dancing from Staffordshire to Cambridgeshire and from Devon to Sussex. She served as Membership Secretary of the FCSH from 2014 and was elected Chairperson in 2016. When not engaged with ECD, she listens to early vocal music and opera and enjoys doing things with granddaughter Ada.
He plays for the morris and is the music part of Let's Dance, which over the years has figured in activities in Cecil Sharp House for the younger dancer, and in the early days of the Family Barn Dances.
His historical researches into folk traditions inform his healthy respect for innovation and good sense when having fun with music and dance.
Other than dancing, I'm learning to play the piano, belong to a community choir and am routinely involved with three grandchildren. Most importantly I share my life with an intrepid whippet lurcher called Floss. We attend weekly agility sessions, where words like 'set' 'turn' and 'single' can mean something completely different!
