For the next few weeks my mind and body will be focused on the next production of Crows Feet Dance Collective. We’ll dance the story of powerful women demonised as “witches.”
2019 is our 20th anniversary! Several of the original members are still dancing, and Jan Bolwell, our director, is still very much in charge. I joined more than ten years ago and I’m the oldest at 79. (You have to be at least 35 to join.) This is a landmark event—please, please come if you can! And spread the word!
Why witches? We’re not witches!
I don’t even believe in witchcraft. But we are fascinated by the way that strong women and wise women have been branded as witches for centuries.
In “The Witch Project” we draw on this rich history in a series of dances that are provocative, serious, amusing, and ultimately a celebration of female strength.
Come and see for yourself!

Lite Blogging only for the next few weeks
But of course, you knew that a mere human cannot blog three times a week AND rehearse intensively AND deal with normal things like broken pipes and AirBnB guests and poetry readings and a torn meniscus. See you at the show, you Kiwis, and everyone else, see you later.
