Fascinated by creative activities and bodies in motion, I started moving with acrobatics and urban dance. In 2008 I had an accident and I had to take a break from dancing. Instead I discovered other sports. Three years later, I started my contemporary dance education where I became more interested in alignment, improvisation and teaching practices. My research is about the connection between different ways of movement. Throughout my studies, I have been working with different kinds of dancers and movers. Dance has a very positive effect on everyone and I am dedicated to sharing this knowledge.
My classes and workshops are based on body alignment.
Whether the participants use their body as an instrument for dancing, performance or other activities, they will have a deeper understanding of their instrument. This will help them approach their personal practices. The knowledge of „The Inner Frame“ can be applied in all aspects of life.
Through core strengthening, stretches and across the floor exercises, I encourage the students to discover, observe and shape their alignment in motion. I put focus into activating the core, which is the base of every movement practice.
Awareness is the other foundation I teach. My class offers a welcoming atmosphere to all participants, so they feel welcome to take a deeper look into their own posture.
„The Inner Frame“
My teaching concept, „The Inner Frame“, is based on the research about my own body after an accident in 2008. I had a broken vertebra and a numb muscle in my back. I never stopped moving or dancing, despite what the doctors advised. Instead, I designed a daily practice for myself while attending several schools for dance and performance in Berlin and Freiburg, Germany.
My own story inspired me to focus on improvisation instead of dancing set choreographies. And as I’m still an active dancer and performer I offer special workshops for dancers of all styles.
In these workshops, I coach the dancers/movers additionally to alignment and core exercises through research and improvisation tasks. So the dancers/movers gain a deeper understanding of their postural structure on one hand, but also a deeper understanding of their way of expression. Per creativity and imagination games I encourage the students to discover unknown paths in their dance patterns and open new opportunities in their movement choices.
I see that every dancer is unique and it is this uniqueness and own story going on, which makes the dancer an individual even in dancing a very popular style. „The Inner Frame – dance“ teaches the dancers to be aware of their inner to gain a wide range of expression into the outer.
