She became passionate about dance at a very young age and
completed her studies at the Royal Balletschool Antwerp.
Subsequently she danced with several dance companies;
Royal Ballet of Flanders, Ballet d'Europe, Staatstheater
Nürnberg and Het Internationaal Danstheater.

choreographers in a broad mix of styles. From classical
to modern and more contemporary work. Goyo Montero,
Jiri Kylian, Jan Fabre, Nacho Duato, Stijn Celis, Angelin Preljocaj etc.
Several main roles were especially created for her;"Juliet" in
Romeo & Juliet and "Mireille" in Mireille. Besides dancing an
urge for more creativity led her to the world of choreography.
In 2012 she wins the "first prize" of Young Belgian
choreographer by Jeugd & Dans, which stimulates her to
continue her research. She starts creating more work for several
dance schools (Royal Balletschool Antwerp, Dansstudio

and Something about Orfeo for the annual young talent program.
