Vision

Art is a poetic translation of life. I feel blessed with the urge to keep on dancing and creating. To visit a dimension that only I can see and yet can connect to others. Dance is a universal language, everyone understands non-verbal movement. Whether it is for an artistic solo, or a grand commercial. The right design of movement is very important for the feeling, for the message of the project. I love it that I keep learning every day in how to articulate movement and what it tells me at that very moment. It is an incredible way of asking indirectly: “I feel/see this, do you?” With an audience responding; “I don’t know why, but I understand. In the way I feel”.
