My passion for dance was guiding me through a lot of different moments in my life.
My dance journey began as a little girl in Zürich with ballet & jazz, and on a trip to Tunisia as a teenager, I fell in love with Oriental Dance. By the time I was 25, Oriental Dance had turned into a career that took me on tours throughout Europe and the Middle East.
I studied Social Work and Coaching, which took my understanding in teaching to a deeper level. I understood clearly that teaching people is very much about method and how important it is to understand where the student is at and what he or she needs: what are their challenges in unlocking flowing, strong, pleasurable dance through healthy posture and balance.
On a sabbatical to study more bellydance in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I discovered another dimension of depth in dance: the tango.
I was fascinated by the possibilities of wordless communication improvised between two dancers. Within a few years, I was teaching tango professionally at the world-reknowned DNI School of Tango in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I danced in productions created by the school's director Dana Frigoli and Melina Brufman for the DNI Tango Company and exhibited in Milongas in Buenos Aires and abroad.
DNI Tango and the incredibly well-organized teaching system gave me a clear idea how to teach from beginners to advanced students in a process-oriented way.
I have also trained for over 6 years now in advanced yoga studies (500+hrs certified), along with training in Release and personal coaching techniques.
Based on that I developed the Dance Your Flow Classes, where I work on body awareness, alignment and anatomy of movements through Yoga. Also combined are other dance techniques that focus on breathing, muscle relaxation and the use of gravity and momentum to facilitate efficient movement in your tango.
The goal is to refine Tango steps and the flow of their movement and to give you an understanding of motion that is independent of whichever tango style you choose. I would love to invite you to share this journey with me, falling in love with your movements as I did.
