Videos

Hey everyone! I hope you are all keeping as well and as healthy as can be during the Coronavirus outbreak.  Sadly I do not have the skills or health to help our amazing keyworkers on the front line, but I hope that my homemade videos will help you to exercise, dance and giggle at home.  I am aiming to add to them daily to create a whole library of over 200 reference videos for you!

If you enjoy my videos and value my years spent dancing and training as a professional dance teacher, please donate whatever you can (but only if you are able to) using the Paypal Donate button as, like so many other self-employed people during this difficult time, I now find myself completely and utterly penniless!  Thank you so very much xxxx
