"I have always loved to dance"
I have always loved to dance.
It still makes me smile to remember when I was about 18, I used to be a Go-go Dancer with Milto and the Beat Girls. We travelled to other countries often (mainly Belgium and Germany) and we were treated like celebrities wherever we danced.
Even when I was a little girl growing up in the Netherlands, I have always been active. I have been working out in the Gym for the past 30 years and was so happy to be able to continue my workout right here at Bridgewater (free of charge too, no Gym Fees!). Since moving here
6 years ago, I have also taken up Tai Chi, Tap Dancing and Lawn Bowls. You wouldn’t believe what a workout Tap Dancing is, I just love it!
Living in the Village has also allowed me to indulge in my other passion with is art, painting and sketching (which I adore doing).
But my story starts last year in Barcelona, when I was sitting having a drink with my sister (who I had treated to a holiday) thinking about what I could do for the Annual Bridgewater Variety Show.
And I’m not sure if it was the Spanish air or the Rioja but I decided I was going to do a Pole Dancing Act as a comedy performance at the Show.
