My dancing-life began in 1980 with primitive rhythms and African dancing lead by Kaatje Verbruggen. I have danced the 5Rhythms® intensively since 1994. In 2001 I did the teacher training with Gabrielle Roth in the US. Since then I have led weekly groups in Mechelen and open dance evenings in Kapelle-Op-den-Bos. I am currently participating in the second training (Heartbeat) in New York.

For 15 years I worked together with Rickie Moore and Henry Marshall, the founders of Tri-energetics, in their Playshops as Groupleader and in Counselor Trainings.

I love holding groups, to stimulate people to feel free. The warmth and respect with which people in the dance classes meet each other give me a feeling of satisfaction that no other job has ever given me.

Through the dance, I encourage and accompany people in their process of increasing awareness, in accepting themselves and in living wholly in the present moment. No big words, no big acts.

Love for what is here now and miracles happen.
