Ever since I was a child, I've felt more attracted to experience the world rather than knowing the world. 
This led me to follow the unmarked path of art and movement.
Professionally, I am managing many of my projects in the realm of performance and dance.

Yet, my curiosity is pulling me to the endless space of physical expression.

My embodied philosophy is guided by Zen Buddhism and relates to acting from playfulness and meditation. 
Martial arts and acrobatics have been my hobbies since childhood. I am constantly inspired by literature, philosophy, animation, architecture music and cinema.

I try to meet my hobbies and my inspirations as often as possible, meeting them over and over with a beginner's mind. 

I believe contemporary dance is the art of reinventing the forms every time I dance, and the practice of synergy between dance and other art forms. I am also very interested in dance outside of the conventions of theater and in bringing dance to more layers of society, nature and the streets.

I have been teaching since I was 16 years old. Teaching is a very gentle work and therefore, I refine and improve my teaching abilities constantly. The center of this refinement is dialogue and deep listening. I find the pedagogical space a fascinating meeting point between scientific observation and intuitive expression. I like to divide my philosophy of teaching to ART and CRAFT. Craft relates to the study of embodying and actualizing the deep human interest in the world. Art relates to the ability to create the space for expression in an ever-changing reality.


Lastly, at the end of each day, I like to remind myself that what I don't know is much greater than what I do know.

Since childhood I've been drawn to sports, movement and dance.

I began my journey in competitive rhythmic gymnastics, then was driven to ballroom dance followed by hip-hop, jazz, ballet and eventually contemporary dance.

Contemporary dance was the language that spoke to me the most. Maybe because it allowed me to keep inventing new expressions and reinventing my own physicality. It led me to become a professional dancer.

I could recognize my inner-self in the language of dance, as if it was my mother tongue. It was the clearest way to actualize my thoughts. Dance became for me an intimate way to find self-expression and to communicate with others.

My approach to dance since the beginning was very broad. My curiosity expanded the barriers of the contemporary dance techniques into other forms of movement. Finding inspiration in different approaches to a moving body, and furthermore, to a moving being.

Encountering movement, as a practice, gave me a sense of autonomy and choice. And moved the question from 'what can I express'? to 'what do I embody'?.

My practice enriches my artistic career and gives clarity to what I like to pass on.

In teaching, I’m more interested in what individuals can learn about themselves through their body rather than the techniques. Although, the learning of techniques definitely gives the necessary tension to be able to encounter the self.

 

My other passion is space. Space, being the abstract concept that it is, brings forwards a dialogue between the self and the environment. From physical forces, materiality, levels, directions and trajectories… The space, in movement, is a wonderful metaphor of the experience of the world.

I hold a B.A in Dance from Artez Academy of the Arts in Holland, B.A. in Journalism from the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona and M.A in Space Design and Ephemeral Architecture from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
