Remember who you are and put on your ballet shoes darling! ❤️ thanks for the inspirational video #forsythe @hardycinzia and @amandadrago getting my Gelsey on! I’m a bit lost at the moment, starting work having some amazing sessions with the wild kids of Northumberland got my online booking system going on… my own kids doing amazing, chickens etc.. but still have I got the energy to start again from scratch? Why yes darling… must dash and find myself some more 🤩 #gelseykirkland #barre #barreworkout #barrefitness I think the positivity has come from the sea swim I had this morning! Doing whatever I can to keep myself afloat, he struggle is real #dance @angusandjuliastone


Found this tiny clip from 1998 I think! Before I studied in New York I spent a time at the Alnwick Playhouse, after coming home from London ✨ allowed a studio to be free, work in and create! I performed this solo a couple of times on the playhouse stage, 20 years later I am now Associate Artist of Alnwick Playhouse and hoping soon I can begin creating in their spaces ⭐️ but for now some outdoor work with the support of the Playhouse. #associateartist #alnwickplayhouse #dancer #hereiamagain #hometown

Mermaids MASTER 720P

If you get a little 6.33 mins today to sit and relax today watch this 👇
Uplifting and equally beautiful photography by Davey Poremba who supported Milli to film too! music score composed by the always brilliant Ian Stephenson. Two amazing young artists filmed, sewed, played has amazing ideas and swam in the North Sea until mid November Milli and Betty. And I brought it all together and was stand in dancer when we got Covid.
It was created for projections on flags which we will be doing much more of now I have my own roof rack. Watch this space.
It’s not quite finished yet as we have much more underwater filming to do, but it’s still stunning, the magic is definitely there.

Our Christmas 2020 gift to you ✨✨✨ Enjoy..

and Thankyou Universe for our beautiful stage.
