I saw this project as an opportunity to enable me to develop my practice as a performer, choreographer and teacher.
In 2010 I received support from the Lisa Ullmann Travelling Scholarship Fund to fly to Écoles des Sables, Senegal to follow a 3 months intensive training for professional dancers from Africa and its Diaspora.
My life as a dance artist has never really been the same since that trip! I have now been to Ecole des Sables at least once every year for training with founder Germaine Acogny. I have participated in choreolabs/residency projects; as a performer in an international project with StepText Dance Project from Germany and since 2015 as a teacher of Germaine Acogny’s technique at Ecole des Sables since 2015. I currently work internationally as a choreographer, performer and teacher.
