After graduating at the Royal Ballet school of Antwerp I joined the Royal Ballet of Flanders in 2011. There I had the oppurtunity to tap into the work of Forsythe, Balanchine, and Marcia Haydee. Two years later, I moved to The Hague to join the Netherlands Dance Theater, where I danced three years with NDT 2 and one year with NDT 1. Dancing with NDT offered me the experience to perform and collaborate with various internationally known choreographers, such as Jiri Kylian, Paul lightfoot and Sol Leon, Sharon Eyal, Johan Inger, and Alexander Ekman. After this 6 year journey of discovery, learning, and performing, I decided to take a break. During one year I was travelling, exploring the power of nature, diving into the essense of yoga, and enjoying the recovery of my body. Besides, It was an important time for me to reconnect to my core needs. At the moment, I feel the desire to share my love for dance and my fascination for the body itself. Furthermore, I’m investigating how I can communicate and invite people to experience the nourishing and healing power of dance. Nowadays, I’m collaborating together with Antonin Rioche for a piece that will premiere at the Korzo theatre in The Hague in November 2019.
