About Barbara

Barbara Perry B.A., B Mus., Dip Psych., Dip. Sacred Dance / Dance Meditation, is a Holy Faith Sister and Sacred Dance teacher at the Luisne Centre for Spirituality, Kilcoole, County Wicklow. She has a background in teaching and retreat work.

From a very early age, Barbara studied classical music and ballet. While music has always been part of her life, she concluded her classical ballet training during her teen years. However, to Barbara’s delight, dance made a welcome return to her life at the millennium, in the form of Sacred Dance / Dance Meditation. Barbara has trained with several teachers but the most transformative influence has been her encounter with Friedel Kloke-Eibl founder of the Association of Sacred Dance / Dance Meditation in Germany, under whose direction she undertook an intensive training over several years.

She leads regular dancing circles and workshops in Ireland and abroad.
