‘Poetry that compels – that challenges, and demands to be read.’ Peter Hay

Katherine E Seppings’ first poetry collection, When Embers Dance, has been called
‘a fearless first collection.’
Published by Melbourne Poets Union, edited by Anne Elvey, Katherine’s chapbook will be launched by Ross Donlon at The Maurocco Bar, Castlemaine, 2.30pm Sunday 29 November.

When Embers Dance is ‘an empathetic and hard hitting rendering of life in contemporary Australia,’ writes Sue King-Smith.
Poems of debilitating drought, bush fires, animal exploitation and family violence are interspersed with ‘hope and quiet joy—a bar in Seville… the birth of faith in a spring garden and poetic musings over a blank page.’

‘The constant note sounded in Katherine E. Seppings’ poems is one of compassion,’ says Ross Donlon. ‘She is able to express her feelings in precise, unsentimental language and through arresting imagery.’

Centering the Self before Dance

I took these photographs to show the calming ritual at the beginning of an Over The Moon Dance Class. This Centering practice prepares the dancers for the mind body connection and focus that is integral to yoga and creative dance.

Preschool Class at Over The Moon Dance Studio

Over The Moon Dance Preschool Class

I’d like to share this YouTube video with you. I have assisted in a preschool dance class at Over The Moon Dance Studio, Castlemaine, for the past decade. I love to dance and I love to encourage dance. Participating in yoga and dance has been one of the healthiest and happiest experiences in my life. It was a privelege to photograph these children. Thank you Edna


This slideshow demonstrates the children in a class with Edna Reinhardt doing yoga together, doing a quiet design activity, being inspired by beautiful music and improvising their own dance. Ties are snakes, boxes are telephones, scarves are birds. Anything goes!
