DanceSince a few years, I have a passion for early dance. I started dancing ballet - classical, show and modern - and did a few courses in ballroom (with an ex who really could not lead...), but it was not before I discovered Early Dance that I decided I want to become a dancer. Now, I am happy to be in the class of Dorothée Wortelboer and hope to be able to enter her group Fiori di Folia, one day!
In the meantime, I just enjoy dancing in class, at home and on stage. I danced with the National Opera, at the Peace of Utrecht Concert (before our prince & princess), at the Anno Domini Festival in St. Petersburg and in various little performances. Beside dancing myself, I love to write & read about dance in Encore!Magazine. And sometimes, I also compose dance music.
ChoreographySome years ago, I created the ballet fairytale The Chinese Nightingale on selfmixed music, for my dance group Waltzing Mathilde. Recently, I got involved in Twitter choreography and contributed to a few dances for DanceTheaterWorkshop New York. Below, you'll find some films of these choreographies, danced by Jillian Sweeney (danser bij DuhonDance).
♪ This summer, I will be dancing in Richelieu (Indre-et-Loire) with Dorothée!
