Tell us about your family: I live with my husband Matt and dog Jasper. They are both wonderful.
How did you get into dance: I read an article about belly dance several years before I ever went to a class. I wasn’t a dancer, but thought it sounded interesting, so when I saw a tiny add in the Independent for a local class several years later advertising Dawn’s class, I decided to give it a try. I fell immediately in love with it.
Favorite song to dance to: I don’t have a single favorite dance song, but I love dancing to Rajasthani folk music, Beats Antique, 80s pop, 90s hip hop
