Expression and relaxation through dance is essential to my life. I have chosen to specialise in Margaret Morris Movement, but am generally drawn to various types of dance, e.g. contemporary, swing, salsa, rumba, oriental, tarantella.


Since April 2017 I am a certified Margaret Morris Movement teacher.



In April 2018 I moved to Maastricht, the Netherlands. I aim to set up Modern Movement classes, following the principles of Margaret Morris Movement.

I have created a facebook page to advertise and connect to people for workshops and classes.

Modern Movement 50+, a free workshop especially targeted for ages around 50 years took place on the 20th of September 2018. Here are pictures of my preparation and the colour combinations the participants chose to dance. It was an amazing experience of creative expression through movement, which I truly enjoyed.

On the 8th of September 2018 I gave a free workshop called Modern Movement to introduce Margaret Morris Movement to Maastricht. Here are some pictures from exercises focusing on balance, breathing, walking, muscle strength, awareness, relaxation, and creativity.

My best friend Lubka and I are LABUKA. Here we've put together various Margaret Morris Movement balances and enjoy ourselves with movement, sun and fresh air in Battersea Park, London, UK, in August 2017.

"Everyone should live creatively. It is now recognised that the creative urge - other than sex - is manifest in varying degrees, not only in musicians, writers and painters, but in all human beings. Adults as well as children are encouraged to paint and to dance freely, to express themselves and put forward any ideas that occur to them. But creation should go further and mean more in our lives than purely aesthetic expression, important though it is. Creation in the widest sense must surely be adding to what already exists. If you contribute something to others and to yourself you are living creatively."
