Biography
I have been taking part in dance ceremony since 1993. In 2004 I felt a huge pull to attend my first “For the One” Dance in South Africa and even though I knew hardly anyone at the start of the dance, I had a feeling I was with “my tribe”. Since this time, I know many others have had similar experiences of feeling part of a global tribe. My feeling is we are learning to create a community that can live in true love and respect and thus nourish the very root of our souls.

Since this time, I have traveled as both member of the international crew and dancer to countries including Ireland, Israel, Norway, Germany, USA and Egypt. I stepped forward to Chief my first dance in Ireland during 2006.

The “For the One” Dance is a dance that breaks down internal boundaries and struggles that we all have. As we dissolve the boundaries, we find that love is actually our natural essence. We let go of parts of us that may hurt us. And we feel connected, at peace and loved in new ways.

Our first job in leading a dance like this is to create a place where everyone feels safe and protected. There is a whole team of experienced people at each dance that supports each dancer.

This is a Healing Dance that takes us to the very core of who we are through singing, dancing and fasting. The dance energy will stay with you the coming year and will feed your learning and soul. It will bless you.

If you wish to come and let go of that which you no longer need, but weren’t quite sure how to let go of it; if you wish to come be part of an experience that, although local in place, is global in its impact then come be with us. We need dancers; we need people to help in the kitchen, to help at the dance arbour, people to drum, etc.

Don’t be scared if you are not sure what this Dance is. Go into your heart and see if you are called to come. If you are, then email us. You will be amongst friends. Yes, at first it can sound strange - this singing, healing dance with drums, ceremony and personal break throughs - but it is connected to the ways our ancestors used to pray.

This is like a revival. A revival of spirit. A revival of our core essence. Feel in your heart if this is for you and go with what you feel.

I've been travelling with the For the One Dance since 2004, carrying out many different roles within the dance in many different countries. Prior to that I have been dancing Drum Dances and Sun-Moon Dances since 1993.
