She also co-choreographed & performed with The Chase, Circa Compania – Karen Tweed’s music & dance ensemble, Daughters of Elvin – Katy Marchant’s medieval music & masked dance theatre,  and Shaking the Tradition at Chisenhale Dance Space, London.

Her education work focusses on foot percussion and English & American dance often within inter-cultural work. She has been developing and delivering workshops in schools, at festivals & community events, and in immigration removal centres with refugees and asylum seekers. She is a visiting lecturer on the folk music degree course at Newcastle University and for several years she has been a tutor on the Folkworks and Halsway Manor summer schools.
