Spiderflower is site specific.


Our relationship with place is a deep root to the work and the landscape upon which we dance is vital.


Oftentimes, Spiderflower finds itself in places of extreme and epic beauty where a close and ongoing relationship develops over many years.


Spiderflower sees place is a teacher. The geology and history of the land we work on matters very much.  Remembering that Spiderflower works in slow time, will stay sometimes for a long time, listening carefully to the beat and the memory that lives here, translating that story through the dance.  In time, we end up with a whole picture.


Avebury in Wiltshire, the UK is one of these places. Spiderflower has been dancing here since 1999. The architectural language of this wise and ancient landscape is core and heartbeat to Spiderflower's make up, directly translating into Spiderflower's wheels and teaching.

Cornwall is also important and is home to much of the wilderness and water work within Spiderflower's repertoire. Courses needing to immerse in the elements are based in the far south-west peninsula around Lamorna, Sennen and Zennor - all very close to the sea.



Over the past 4 years, Sweden has made its call.  Spiderflower has danced at Ängsbacka and Solhälla, while a special relationship unfolds with the gentle and beautiful power of Borntorpet Shambala Gatherings in Skinnskatteberg. Building from these rural venues, Spiderflower also offers easy access classes and courses in Stockholm, working presently from Danscentrum and Folkuniversitetet Stockholm.
