Dot has had a very eclectic engagement with the theatre. As a young adult, she danced for her Primary School in South London and this was one of the many outlets for her athleticism - swimming, gymnastics and athletics.
She maintained her interests by attending Pineapple Studios in jazz and contemporary dance, then working with Raymond McLean and Evrol Puckering at the West Indian Student Centre, touring many London venues.
There she also joined the Black Arts Workshop, an amateur company performing agit prop theatre in dance and political drama at local venues and universities.
She never lost her love of dance and drama pursuing many diverse opportunities for performance. Chief among these were the Miranda Hampton Jazz and Contemporary Dance Group of Westminster Adult Education.
As a Pensioner, she has re-engaged with dance by taking Classical Ballet classes at Danceworks UK , performing with Elimu Mas in Carnival costumes in China and Notting Hill and showcasing the creativity of Mas in seminars, school assemblies and corporate events.
She is currently rehearsing for a short film on loneliness expressed through dance.
