A Life Danced

My whole life, I’ve danced.  Born into a folkloric family in the Balkans, I was initiated quite early into the rhythms, steps, and stories of my cultural heritage and have taken it around the world with me.  

As I've learned and incorporated new idioms into my repertory, one constant jumps out in particular: that dance is a powerful portal into a higher, nobler, more attuned state of being.

I believe Dance is Medicine, Meditation, Art & Spiritual Practice all in one.  When I dance, I drop into the Eternal Now - an embodied connection to Earth, Universe, Ancestry and Archetypes.

I'm glad you're here and honored to share my heritage, work and art with you!
