I teach... Body Mind Centering (BMC) for adults and the class baby, let's dance.
I dance because... I have always done it. Dancing makes me happy. I feel alive, free and well balanced.
I pay special attention to... the flow of the movement and that it feels organic or looks organic to others.
This song always gets me moving... "Time goes by so slowly" by Madonna.
Especially influenced me... the French choreographer Dominique Bagouet and several of his dancers were very important to me. His work is still incredibly modern.
The best place for me to dance is... in a beautiful studio, a meadow outside, a beach.
A key moment in dancing was for me... when I discovered contemporary dance at a summer workshop because it touched my heart so much. I changed the direction of my education (originally ballet).
I want to pass on to my course participants... the happiness of freedom in dancing, the beauty of the body - how it is built and how it functions, works and moves, the resources for inner balance, expression and inner peace and communication.
I look forward every year... to seeing my participants again after the summer, offering longer workshops, accompanying and admiring the babies of others in their development, the atmosphere of the Potsdamer Tanztage festival, the constant discovery and exploration, learning thanks to my participants.
