My first taste of dancing Contact Improvisation was in a workshop led by Juliet. It was a transformative experience. Damian Manu

Her classes have been great in training and recovery for a major sports event and were absolutely brilliant in rehabilitation from a major ankle fracture – much better than physiotherapy. Sue Morgan
