BEHIND THE DECK
”I have always loved dancing. In my early teens I studied both the pre education of dance at the AHK and music & songwriting at the conservatory of Amsterdam. The competitive side of dance had taken my joy for the dance away and found myself not dancing for a few years until I encountered Ecstatic dance. I have been deeply touched by this. It not only revived my joy in dancing but because of the silence within the dance, the dance itself became my greatest teacher. It’s within the arts that we can explore different aspects of life in an abstractive way that we cannot explore in other ways.”
