About

In november 2017 the idea came up to approach elderly and patients as gentle and stimulating as pregnant women. As a dance coach I invite the client to explore his/her body movement and emotions. Based upon Holding space and Doula practices I create a safe environment to explore. By demonstrating movements and introducing playful improvisations I invite to move beyond comfortable and well-known body movements while playing safe. Currently I am applying for Dance for Health training.
