Blackpool 2009

I had a wonderful weekend with Combronde Country Club, who celebrated their 10 year club anniversary. Special thanks to Nathalie for inviting me and to her daughter, Manon for looking after me. Thank you both so much for your kindness.

Thank you to everyone for making me feel so welcome at your special event, it was lovely to meet you all. It was also lovely to see dancers who had travelled from various places in France. Special thanks to Annik & Denise, who always travel to see me, it was lovely to see you both again. Also, Stephanie, who I will be working with at her event next year with Gary.

The dances I taught went down well, which were All I Need to Know, Something You Love, Gone West & Castles. We took a great video of Castles, which can be seen on Copperknob.

I also choreographed a new High Level Improver dance called Tonight is Real, which I have dedicated to the club. This dance won't be released until the end of this month as I need it for other events in September.


I hope those of you in the UK enjoyed the sunny bank holiday. I have just released my new Intermediate dance Castles. Many thanks to Claire Butterworth for the video taken in Liverpool.


I had a great time with Steve Rutter, Calico & Steve Healy at the Kingshill weekend at the Adelphi Hotel, Liverpool. It was lovely to see old and new faces and thank you to all for supporting Kingshill.

I taught my new Intermediate dance, Castles, which went down really well. I also taught All I Need to Know, choreographed with Gary, and our Improver dance, Gone West.

Over the past few weeks, the boys and I have spent a wonderful time in Ireland with all our close family. Now it's time for a family break with John and the kids. See you back on the dance floors in September.


It was lovely to be working back in Oslo, Norway, with Siw. Special thanks to Siw's daughter, Marianna, for DJing and to Lena for collecting and taking me to the airport.

Also, it was lovely to see Annik & Denise from France, Monika and Nives from Switzerland, Lenard & friends from Sweden, Gunnor and his wife from Germany and dancers from Bergen & Boden. Thank you for making the long journeys guys.

We had a wonderful workshop with lots of fun and laughter. The dances I taught were Gone West, Something You Love, Water on the Flames, All I Need to Know and my brand new intermediate dance, Castles, which will be released soon.

We had a wonderful time cruising on the ship "Oasis of the Seas", but after returning I was struck down with a nasty flu/sickness virus and was in bed for most of the week!

Thank you for all your lovely comments. Thank you to those who have asked about John, I haven't overworked him lol, unfortunately he has a poorly foot.

On the cruise I taught Keep It Simple, Everything I Have, Something You Love, Water on the Flames, We'll Be Dancing, She Ain't Me, Home To You and Jig About.

I want to thank you all for coming on the cruise. We had such a great time. Thank you to Brigitte Pfeiffer for the small ships she made for everyone and also for the badges!
