About

 

I am a contra and ceilidh caller based in Coventry, working with a variety of ceilidh bands up and down the country.  I am available for contra dances and ceilidhs, Playford balls and folk dance clubs, workshops, festivals, weddings and parties.

Ceilidh Dance at the Inter Varsity Folk Dance Festival

An economist by day, by night I am a dancer, a contra and ceilidh caller, a festival organiser and have even been known to deploy the bagpipes.  I am a regular at Warwick Folk Ceilidhs and at Alcester Contra, and I am a member of the award winning Thrales Rapper side.  My love of dance encompasses American contras and squares, English ceilidh and Playford, rapper, balfolk, Scandi, blues, modern jive, Argentine tango and lindy hop.
