About

Dancing is my favourite form of physical activity and ever since starting dancing at the age of 8 I’ve tried many-many different styles, everything from ballet and folk dance to reggaeton and heels. In 2016 I discovered social dancing and fell in love – the feeling of community and immediately having friends to dance with all over the world have kept me hooked ever since. First I joined salsa classes, which was then followed by learning kizomba, brazilian zouk, bachata, forró and samba de gafieira. Besides continuing to learn dance and improve my skills, I now also create ladies styling choreographies which you can check out on Youtube.
