My creations are intelligent, entertaining masterpieces full of fun and emotion - they are alive.  

I transpose feelings and thoughts into movement using my deep natural understanding for movement quality and dynamic awareness.  

Each and every detail is created with purpose and meaning.  

It is my belief that dance is the epitome of expression through movement.

Critique   —  The Tingle Inside

“A scene, like in the film The Great Gatsby,  where a couple in a bar dance ravishingly to a type of “Yankee Doodle Folk Music” that doesn’t look like ballet at all.  It is pure enthusiasm and joy,  seeing bodies moving, playing and letting loose like we all have one time experienced out on the dance floor”.    - Ruth Fühner, Hessen Radio Frühkritik
