“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost!”

_MG_5590

2012 has been so much about dance for me…thankfully!

I made the following clip in honour of the wonderful people that I dance with at Body Electric and the prolific amount of work that teacher Jade Duffy does in bringing people back to dance, or perhaps TO dance for the first time in their lives – and makes it accessible.

It’s something special.

Dance, dance otherwise we are lost.

Don’t forget to move your bodies people. Be free. Be adventurous. Be alive!

Your body was made to move, give yourself the gift of moving as freely as you can this new year! Your body will thank you!

Happy New Year all. xo

Leaping for life

It’s a new series about LEAPING FOR LIFE!

It’s about the joy, the hard work, the play and the fun of being a dancer.

And who better to give you a taste test, than dancer/performer Danica Lani.

She can outlast a room full of bouncing children leaping off tables and dancing the night away. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

She’s a life coach too, so she can guide you in how to get more out of YOU!

So step forward into this lively world with me, it will become an exhibition of shots you have not seen yet!!

Love life.

Body Electric Dance Off 2011

Well you’ve gotta be in it to win it, as they say.

And if you don’t happen to win, you have a hell of a ride getting there. And after-all OTHER people say that it is the journey that counts.

No regrets for these Body Electricians!

These pictures are just a sneak peak at the backstage preparation and fun that goes into the full show that is Body Electric.

‘Fright Night’, Body Electric Dance Off  2011

The Palace Theatre, Bourke St, Melbourne.

180 odd dancers (in more ways than one!)

Sell out show.

Where else would you want to be?

Nowhere.

A dance parade to bade farewell

It’s true, I am working backwards. My last day in New York City involved a colourful and joyous celebration of the love of dance.

2011 New York Dance Parade

This is why I love New York! And if you check out the faces of most of these dancers, you will have a glimpse in to why I love dance!

Thank you NYC for the fabulous send off.

Hello there!!

Portrait of a Dancer 6To begin my journey into the blog world, I thought I might post a little teaser of images that will be part of an exhibition in the new year. It is called ‘Portrait of a Dancer’. The images are all of one dancer/choreographer, a very talented lady from Korea by the name of Helena Yuk. I wanted to show the body in motion as well as feature the details of skin and muscle, as dancing is such an intensely personal and revealing form of art. It is about using every pore in your being to convey your message. I find that inspiring and brave and I wanted to honour that in my images.
