​My Passion

 

​Yes, dance is first of all my great passion and love. It is my way to express myself. It is my blues treatment and safety valve, my way of sharing joy and enthusiasm. It is my ‘place’ where I discover myself, over and over again.

Dance is also the perfect way to party, having fun with friends and meeting new people. It is universal language, abounds with expression means, that let you communicate with no words with almost everybody, no matter the nationality, origins or culture. It gives the space for improvisation and common creativeness. And creating with others brings enormous joy:)

professional and personal.Dance is also my profession, which gives me the opportunity to share enthusiasm and enjoyment with others, show them new ways of discovering themselves. Infecting with passion and watching the others discovering the passion in themselves brings me the biggest satisfaction - both 

So what is dance for me? It is simply my way of life:)
