Day out in Bournemouth yesterday with some of the Riverdance guys. We thought it would be great fun to ride a Hot Air Balloon. Turned out to be great as we we’re able to see an amazing view of the whole city including the seaside.

Myself and my sister Natasia backstage during our first Riverdance shows at the Gaiety in Dublin!
I would like to officially announce that I will be joining the cast of Riverdance during their 2014 UK and Switzerland Tour. I am super excited and cannot wait to start rehearsals on Monday.
Summer in London, 2012. This video consists of my time in England at the beginning of Summer and at the end of Summer. During my 2 visits, I stayed in a gorgeous town house in Notting Hill which was during the week of the 2014 Irish Dancing World Championships and it was only 2 streets away from Portobello Road. I managed to stay in Bristol (at the lovely Hodges family household) and we visited the town of Bath for the day to see the Roman Baths and also went to a Caribbean Festival. I had such a lovely week and they even got me to taste Indian food! I was also very grateful to have a place to sleep in Stratford where I stayed at my best mates, Kieran’s studio apartment. During that week I met new people through him and we visited places like Camden, Covent Garden and Shoreditch/Brick Lane-which became a current hang out place for me. I also stayed in Upney, Essex, with the lovely Graydon family. My good friend Olivia Graydon (who you will see in this video) took me to many places but one place that stuck with me and that now is one of my favourite places in London is South Bank. I can’t even explain the atmosphere, but the live music,street acts and of course the best waffles in London also have a huge impact on me! On a glorious sunny Sunday I went to Brighton for the day with my Australian friend Emma, and we drank cider all day and sat by the beach….mind you on my way home it was the World Cup finals for the football in Brazil and I was sad about Argentina losing! And last but not least in my final week, I stayed in West Hempstead with Curtis, who is basically my older brother on tour and of course my amazing dance partner in Heartbeat of Home (Dream Dance.) Even though I didn’t get to see much of him during that week as he was busy performing with Monty Python at the O2 Arena, the night where he cooked a delicious vegetarian lasagne and the morning he cooked a mean English breakfast fry-up was all I could’ve asked for. So I saw Matilda the Musical, went out almost every night and had a great time. But most of all I was so happy that I got to meet so many talented and beautiful people during my trip. You all know who you are!
So please enjoy my video. The audio does not belong to me but the videos do. So share as you please and i’ll be posting some excited new things soon as I will be performing all over England (and London of course) again in a few months time for the UK Riverdance Tour of 2014!!
Going back to last year when we were filming the Heartbeat of Home DVD at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin. Here is shot of myself taken from the clip of Dream Dance. I miss performing this every night, 8 shows a week for thousands of people. I get nothing but joy whilst performing this piece.
