“Modern dance” is an umbrella term that covers agreat variety of techniques and dance methods. Even if you take upthis form of dance at a later age, you have a greater chance ofbecoming a modern dancer precisely because of the freedom thatcharacterizes modern dance. However, if you are doing it for fun,and/or with another motivation, I can still highly recommend it.
Welearn floorwork elements (What’s our relationship with the floor?How softly can we get down on the floor? How can you avoid hurtingyourself when you reach the floor?).I teach certain fixed techniquesthat contribute to muscle development, stretch the body and improvecoordination.
There are also elements/methods of improvisation in thecourses. In these, you can experience yourself within flexibleboundaries. I help you to arrive in your own body and to experience akind of freedom.In modern dance, it is the music that carries you,and the experience is yours. You need to face your challenges withinthe framework of movement. Why would we miss any opportunity when wecan dance, be ourselves, find a form of expression? In modern dance,we play between the sky and the earth. We take the energy of theearth and grow roots beneath the surface, but at times we reach up tothe sky, defying gravity.

When I was 4, I went to my mum and asked her to take me to ballet class because I wanted to be a ballerina. I’ve been dancing ever since. This is what I’ve been doing my whole life. It is through dancing that I’ve developed physically as well as mentally. Whatever I learnt there, I tried to implement in my everyday life as well. I felt already at a very young age that moving my body is the best thing that could happen to me. I loved it then and I still love it today. The best feeling is when I myself become the movement instead of just moving my body. Dancing encompasses everything that intrigues me: the discovery of our potential, music, self-awareness, energies, emotions and states.
