Having had the privilege to train with the late Jim Hastie, his belief in me opened up wonderful teaching opportunities. My teaching started in London, England and over the years it has expanded to many countries around the world.

I have seen wonderful places with invitations to teach in France, Switzerland, Canada, Germany, Greece, Australia and Japan. I am always thrilled to experience the contrasting cultures. Often, I am also lucky to be escorted off the beaten track to places of beauty or history by a local who is proud to educate me in the wonders of their country.

In each location I see eager faces and bodies willing and wanting to learn about MMM dance, its history and technique. It is universal and all are eager to progress, to see what the next challenges bring and get lost in the love of dance – I hope that this never changes. I have been part of many exhilarating MMM gatherings, and am reluctant to point to individual experiences, as they have all been so fabulous.

I can’t believe how lucky I have been, and am grateful to all who have invited me to teach. Their generosity, kindness, support plus the many excursions outside of teaching made each occasion unique. From every trip I bring home a memento to hold the experience close to my heart.

Dance training with MMM is just a start and is accessible to anyone who has a love for movement, but for those with teaching potential, it can open up a world of experiences. So start your training now – the world is your oyster.

Save Our Lilleshall

The West Midlands MMM have held annual dance week-ends at Lilleshall for over 60 years with illustrious teachers including Margaret Morris, Jim Hastie, Leila Shaw, Valerie Wood and many others. 2013 was a great week-end with Barbara West leading the way.

Sadly over the years the number of participants enjoying this week-end has decreased and it is becoming uneconomical. We really do not want to lose this course, so why not make 2014 the year that you experience dancing in his beautiful location with first class residential facilities.
