BETSY WATKINS STUDIO @ SOUTH FREMANTLE HIGH SCHOOL

The studio is located at the rear of the school.

From Lefroy Road turn onto Porter St, then right into Pass Cres. Don't follow the road around the corner, instead go down the driveway and turn right into the carpark.

This studio is named in memory of Betsy Watkins - a much loved member of Free Spirit Gypsy Tribal and Tribalive! - who passed away in March 2009. Betsy once joked that if we ever held a "Tribal Fest in the West", it should be held in the "Betsy Watkins Memorial Hall". So we have named our special Studio dance space in loving memory of our "Miss Betsy".

Betsy was also a talented artist - the drawing of the tribal dancer featured on this website is one of Betsy's creations, and the Studio itself is decorated with several of her artworks.

Features :

  • A dance-friendly, floating wood floor
  • Full wall of mirrors
  • Opening windows and ceiling fans
  • A sound system that accommodates CD, Ipod dock and USB media
