Artist Details

Frances Richardson

Frances Richardson started dancing when she was 17 and has called at many Festivals on repeated occasions, including Chippenham, Lichfield, Broadstairs, Sidmouth and Southam, plus dance weekends, Playford Balls, days of dance, and Saturday dances across the country. Frances has also been the dance director for the Lichfield Folk Festival for the last 15 years, guiding it through the difficult years to renewed success.
She enjoys a variety of styles and whilst Playford was her first and enduring love, she also does American and Scottish (she holds the RSCDS teaching certificate). Above all Frances believes that dancing should be enjoyable, and guides clearly but with a light touch.
