Contemporary experimental Kinesiology movements

Ina is a passionate young dancer and teacher who has always been fascinated by biomechanics, functional anatomy and kinesiology, which initially got her interested in dancing. She has recently graduated from ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem (NL), where she has spent four years of her degree specialising in integrating kinaesthetic approaches into technical classes. Inspired by her recovery from a recurring injury, Ina aims to find sustainable and efficient ways of moving based on natural anatomy.

As an Artist Educator, she enjoys guiding her students towards understanding movement through experiencing their individual anatomical possibilities. With this knowledge she hopes to give the students tools to autonomously work on their artistic development and technique whilst avoiding unnecessary strain on their bodies. Ina believes that optimizing movement through actively listening to the body is a powerful tool for creative, authentic, and vivid expression in improvisation. She embraces individuality, curiosity and joy when it comes to moving and aims to share this spirit in her teaching. Improvising from a place of pleasure lays the groundwork for her classes as we develop a positive and nurturing mindset to enable unrestricted and effortless movement.
