I graduated as a dancer & choreographer (BA, Hons) from Falmouth University, UK in 2018. I work as a freelance dance artist in Finland, mainly in Pirkanmaa. I work with accessibility, feminism and societal criticism.
As a creator I gravitate towards feminist subjects. A big part of my practice is background research, especially from a historical perspective. My choreographic process is mostly based on creating material with improvisational practices. I am passionate in researching the use of film and dance together in different ways. I believe in creating a safe working environment, collaboration and open communication.
As a performer I am brave, open and sensitive. I have a strong technical background in contemporary dance, ballet and jazz. I am also attending lessons for singing and acrobatics.
I am currently expanding into community dance. I am very honored to be mentored by Marjo Hämäläinen to start holding dance for Parkinson's in Pirkanmaan Tanssin Keskus. I am also being mentored to become a Tanssikummi® with PTK this year. A concept by Läntinen tanssin aluekeskus in which dance is brought to different communities to make dance accessible for all.
