What is dance without freedom?
That is the question. But what is the answer? For me, dance means nothing without freedom. Dance and freedom are connected to each other. That is how I prefer to dance. How I prefer to transmit dance during my lessons.

When are you a dancer?
That is the question. But what is the answer? Being a dancer is very relative, I think. 'You are a dancer if your technique is perfect!' No ... 'You are a dancer when you dance at the National Ballet or Scapino!' No...
Being a dancer is about how you experience it. Do you experience that you enjoy dance and dance and you get the most out of yourself? Do you feel that every movement you make, no matter how small or how big, makes your day good again? I think you are a dancer then.

I have been dancing at Danshuis Haarlem since I was ten years old. I grew up in this environment. I have experienced how free I am when I dance here, how good you can become if you really want it! Experiencing what it is like to attend an academy. Experiencing how heavy that is and how that really is not my thing at all. Experienced that this is my home and that I am happy here.

I am a dancer, and nobody takes that away from me.
