Teacher classical ballet
former principal dancer of The Dutch National Ballet

After my first dance years as a child in California, I completed my dance education at the National Ballet School in Toronto, Canada. From 1979 to 2001 I danced with Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam and from 1990 as the principal dancer. Leading roles in the full-length classical repertoire, such as Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella and Swan Lake were the ultimate highlights for me, but I also had the opportunity to create ballets together with Hans van Manen, Toer van Schayk and Rudi van Dantzig in particular. In 2000 I finished my dance career and since then I have built up a lot of experience in giving classical ballet lessons at ao. Danshuis Haarlem, the National Ballet Academy, Royal Conservatory, Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, International Dance Theater.

As support for knowledge I have followed courses in the Vaganova Method with Kalina Bogoeva and at the American Ballet Theater in NYC. There I completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive for level Primary to Level 3.

Currently I am working at the National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam as 'Coordinator Outreach & Scouting'. Encouraging young talent to start their dance education and career gives me great satisfaction. The concept of purely classical technology, lines and appearance is where my passion lies. With our large, new studio we can also move more freely! Following the advanced lesson I will repertoire and possibly. give tips to give the dancers a taste of the professional dance world.
