Janice is originally from Lincolnshire, England and now lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Like most children in the U.K., her introduction to Scottish Country Dancing came as part of the P.E. curriculum in school, and with parents who were a Morris Dancer and a Scottish Country Dancer, it was inevitable that dancing became an important part of her life. She took her RSCDS Teaching Certificate in the Twin Cities, and now teaches youth and adult classes in the John Muir Branch in Madison. She has danced Scottish Country Dancing across the world where ever she has lived, in countries such as Switzerland, Niger, Germany, Romania, and Norway, before finally settling in the U.S. She enjoys challenging her students with dances that leave them with a feeling of accomplishment and a sense of appreciation for each other as part of a team.
