Simone started dancing at the ripe old age of 11, and hasnít stopped since. In the beginning her repertoire was very international. She started teaching in the seventies. Influenced by Philippe Callens and AADS, she discovered the English Country Dances and New England Contra Dances in the late eighties, and this repertoire has been her favourite pastime ever since. She especially likes the variation in music and the lovely tunes, as well as the flowing figures, and the interaction between the dancers.
Her repertoire stretches from the earliest Playford collections to contemporary choreographers. Simone regularly teaches in Flanders and the Netherlands, and annually at a weekend in Scotland.
She has also taught in England, Wallonia and Germany.
Toos started dancing over 50 years ago. Originally English country and American contra, later also Scottish.
She has been calling for 45 years, mostly for the club Vodawiko at Eindhoven, but occasionally also at weekends in the Netherlands or in Belgium.
Toos also composes dances, her second book came out last year. She thinks it is fun to present nice and beautiful dances and she always gets excited when she discovers new ones.
Music by "Triple Time". Triple Time, three fine musicians from the Netherlands: Kees Mook (violin), Wil van den Berg (accordion) and Marieke Van Leersum (recorder), who have played for various AADS weekends.
