What I do
I am a contemporary dancer based in Amsterdam. As a dancer I work for various choreographers and artists in the Netherlands as well as abroad. In the past I have danced for Guy Nader & Maria Campos (ES), Liat Waysbort (NL), Michael Wälti (CH), ICK Amsterdam (NL) and many more. Since 2017 I have been working with Jen Wren’s Slanjayvah Danza (UK) on a regular basis. The new piece ‘6 feet, 3 shoes’ will premier at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019.
As a choreographer I work with the dance collective Chronos where I co-create dance pieces since 2015 and also perform in them myself.Our latest piece 'The Three Graces' has toured through The Netherlands and abroad. I also choreographed the solo performance ‘Innocence is Kinky’ and performed it at the Julidans Festival in 2018.
Where I am from
I grew up in Switzerland where I started dancing at an young age. My first steps in ballet got me interested in other dance styles as well, and soon I began training in various styles. My decision to become a professional dancer was a natural consequence of my ongoing interest in dancing. As part of my studies at the Zürich Tanz Theater Schule. I trained in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Breakdance, Flamenco and Tapdance. After graduating, I decided to continue with further education and to specialize in contemporary dance. In 2012, I moved to Amsterdam to do my Bachelor's in Contemporary Dance at the Amsterdam School of the Arts where I graduated in 2016.
Besides working as a dancer I have also been teaching 'zouk', a Brazilian partner dance, and have opened up my own dance school, ZoukAmsterdam. From 2013 - 2016 I have been teaching weekly classes to over 150 students. Currently I organize workshops in contemporary dance in Amsterdam.
