My movement language is characterized by autodidactic, dynamic and creative influences of the urban dance scene, on the way of merging with classic and modern theoretical / practical dance technique. Contemporary dance with precise coordination and isolation of the body in relation to space, time and the play with the qualities of movement. Driven by the curiosity of experience …

I think and live through movement. There are no moments when something stands still. Even sleep is just an external state of calm, I breathe, my heart beats, the blood flows. Standing still is like death. No life would be possible without movement. Even if you don’t look at movement somatically, but psychologically in the form of emotions of being moved. Daily impressions, successes, failures, the ego, expectations, influences, plans, actions, surprises, fears, hopes, and much more keep the thoughts constantly on their toes. Therefore, for me, movement is the elementary sign of life. „Movement is the source of dance“
