Eastbourne International Folkdance Festival 2018

Nigel Close

"Mined out of Thyme"
Keeping Thyme have dug out a rich seam of their favourite tunes and Nigel has excavated the dances that fit them.   Nothing too complex or energetic to start the day, but some glittering nuggets are here to be picked up.

Nigel Close has danced for most of his adult life and was dance director of the display team Woodfidley for many years. He calls for Playford balls, club nights and ceilidhs; has taught a range of workshops including Welsh, Manx and dance technique; and leads the Winchester club ‘as many as will’.

His philosophy is that dancing should be enjoyed and part of this enjoyment is in listening and responding to the music – making the music visible in dance.

In his spare time he is the token man in a circle dance group!
