teaching- method:

In my work with non-professionals it is sincerely important to me to create a space where they are encouraged to find their own movement material to a certain theme. I begin a project with a dance training adjusted to the level of the group and also communicate different improvisation opportunities. In the next step I try to approach the given topic together with the participants, by talking about it, collecting ideas and writing them down, improvising in small groups, watching and observing each other. In this way the participants are being asked to create their own dance material, which in the last step will then be choreographically edited and worked on.

Through this way of working it is ensured that the participants do not feel disgraced or exposed, because they can show themselves with their own authentic movement possibilities. This way their own movement repertoire is being extended immensely and the courage to present something personal increases a lot.

My projects are artistic projects, because it is always about imagination and creativity. Additionally they have a social component to them because it is so important to agree with the personalities and needs of the participants and not only fight for ones own artistic vision to get on stage no matter what.
