How are you/have you been involved with Casson & Friends?
I worked with Casson & Friends for the 3 instalments of the wonderful 'Selling Secrets' project that took place in Bournemouth from 2013-15.
What do you love about dance?
I have no short answer to this question! I've spent a lot of time over the past few months transferring content to a new website, and this has given me the opportunity to look back over 10 years of working as a professional dance artist. It's such a privilege to have had this opportunity to work in the world of dance, to tell stories through dance, and to communicate my love of dance to other people, many of whom are now starting their own careers in the arts. I'm convinced that dance has a unique capacity to engage all individuals, regardless of their ability or experience, and I hope I can continue working on projects that enable me to test that out, like 'Selling Secrets', but also my own work which takes me into museums and heritage sites.
What song always makes you dance? (We are creating a spotify playlist!)
ELO's Mr Blue Sky, I Love To Boogie by T-Rex, Happy by Pharrell Williams (until I made it my alarm tone on my phone, big mistake!), I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons to name just a few.
