ABOUT MY WORK

A solid education is an essential prerequisite for a successful and fulfilling career as a dancer. In view of the current diversity of ballet and its influence on contemporary dance, I aim to prepare the students specifically for their future career and work in multinational companies, My goal is to support and accompany them in building up their muscles, developing their musicality, flexibility and sense of balance, coordination, power transmission and expenditure of energy in ballet. For their continued professional and personal development, it is important to me to be able to pass on to them my own experiences which I have gained as a solo dancer, lecturer and ballet master in multiple international ballet houses. The Palucca University of Dance Dresden stands for profound education. The University contributes to artistic life in a diversity of areas around the globe. My ambition is to serve this tradition in my work.
