Hi, I'm Gillian Beattie. I am many things but the one constant is I am a creator. I live in the moment and my mad world and family is a blessing. My passion is helping others, please see my BIO page for my experience.
They do say 'variety is the spice of life' and I'd agree as during the course of three decades I have acquired a wealth of experience in many facets of health, dance, business and occupational safety. Unfortunately due to the pandemic my creative arts projects are slowly developing in the background as my sport therapy and pain relief work is needed more. Currently I help people in self isolation and basically educate on self-care for musculoskeletal aches and pains.
Projects are in alphabetical order...
Arts2u Theatre Company - I ran this company from 2000 - 2019.
I produced T.I.E, PPA workshops and projects within the North West. I also co-produced The Dixie Dean Story theatre production and continue to work in collaboration with John Keith on Liverpool and Everton football productions including The Shankly Story, Bob Paisley Reluctant Genius, Kendall's Kings and The Kop's Roman Carnival, among many other theatre productions.
A Secret Poem - This is a fun website for my poetry. I created a treasure hunt where you find a hidden poem through images or coordinates. Lots have been found but some are still out there - Take a look!
I am honoured to have 2 books published if you want to take a look... check them out here: Books
I found one of my poems on The Map of Poems ... Take a look
beatt2write - A website that gives you an insight into my minds eye... if you dare to go there !
This site is an offload of thoughts, emotions, issues and passion. I post new work, ideas and link to other amazing sites and work.
Blog - This is fab... no bias intended :) Opinions are my own. Mainly a dance blog sharing my 30 years experience in all forms of the industry. If you go back to 2017 posts you will see my Moroccan trip and a few sport therapy articles that are interesting if you are not a dance fan.
Coach / Mentor / Consultant - I work with a commercial businesses consulting in occupational health and safety, I also have the privilege to work with individuals in creative development through the new ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS. Something as little as turning up and sharing updates on a regular basis really does make a difference and advances you to reach your goals. Check out when my next intake is here
Dance Inspire UK - This is my site to advocate our UK dance industry. With working inside and outside of the dance industry I know how talented and hard working dancers, teachers, choreographers and creative entrepreneurs are. Yet they are so under-represented in what they do for our society, health and wellbeing of children and our economic culture. They mainly fly solo, so i wanted to have somewhere that all bridges of commercial, private and public sectors could engage. A massive quest and one that I was doing on my own so I was only able to scratch the surface and encourage listeners to fly the flag too! Check out the podcast DANCE INSPIRE
FreeStand Films - I was delighted when asked to be part of this production team as film, t.v production and multimedia opens up a whole new world. Please visit the website, follow our progress and sign up for Premiere releases and updates... hopefully released in 2021.
Online Training - This is being developed but I am VERY excited to share more soon!
Sport Therapy - After many years as a dancer and teacher, I advanced my knowledge in sport therapy and gained my final qualifications in 2014 to provide treatments in rehabilitation, prevention of injury and posture correction. I am delighted to have worked with people from all backgrounds, colour, race, ability and physical ability as pain is pain, no matter who you are. It is my job to get rid of it and help you reach a better quality of life... So that's what I do!
The Complete You - This is part of my experience and knowledge growth. I see people daily wanting a quick fix on something they have been living with for years. This happens in all aspects of life eg - you have a physical injury, your business is stuck from growing or you feel lost in your personal life. The Complete You is about acknowledging where you currently are, managing where you want to be and taking action to achieve change through plans created by YOU. Take a look and join in sessions to begin your change in situation :)
