“I danced under the sheltered canopy of Beech trees this afternoon, my eyes scanning the forest floor and finding fragile bird skulls and majestic pheasant feathers, chalk, flint, moss, wet mulchy leaves and dark brown earth. Woodsmoke wove into the weft of my clothes. I felt a beautiful expansive connection with my fellow dancers, with the surrounding ancient landscape and my trusty senses. Thank you" Wendy 2014
