1. What is the main focus on your classes?

In my classes classes I prioritize energy. I want to teach you to reach new levels and how much you can actually take in when you’re dancing. Because I really love to dance full out and it’s contagious. I also want to try to convey my thoughts on ambition. Since I started to dance without counting in 5678 to the music, I believe very strongly, that talent means very little in this life. Ambition is everything.

2. Which qualities do you think are important for a dancer?

Dare to be yourself. I believe that a dancer’s personality very often mirrors how you dance. I’m like completely crazy and can never be still, and I think it reflects in my movement patterns. If you’re afraid to show who you are, I believe it can be harder to reach your potential. But most importantly, I think is to be open.

3. What makes your style unique?

What makes my style unique is that it is full out and  then there are is FULL OUT. I always try to push to dance harder, stronger and faster. I love the energy and my style is unique because  I will make you feel the same!

4. What inspires you?

Travel, music, friends and love.
