Something about ourselves
I am the artistic director of my dance school for adults now in its 30th year in Victoria. I am a performer in dance and theatre. I sing in a choir. I love colours and interesting creative people and love the idea of exploring new cities while giving people the opportunity to do the same from my home. My sons and families live in Berkeley and Oakland California, so I would love to exchange there in order to see my sons. But I am also wanting to travel further abroad. See the Homepage.
