Hello – I’m Jo Willacy, creator of Waltzing Lyrical. I can’t resist a play on words. That’s how my blog got its name. It’s a place where I’ll ‘wax lyrical’ (geddit?) on my passion: dance. Having been a journalist for 25 plus years, I’m not bad at waxing lyrical, either. Writing about dancing partners two activities I love. In my day job as a freelance health writer, I’m lucky enough to be invited to varied dance fitness classes, have interviewed several of the Strictly pro dancers and chatted to women whose lives have been transformed by taking up dance of some form. It’s often difficult to call it work, as what I do is such fun and so inspiring. I hope, whether you have a passing interest in dance and fitness, or you’re a wannabe Darcey Bussell/Arlene Phillips (*delete as appropriate!) you’ll enjoy the posts on Waltzing Lyrical.
