I am a Latvia-Born choreographer and movement artists. Coming into dance from the rich world of capoeira, I'm constantly looking at the generative properties of improvised material and it's relation to set choreographic performances. Currently an MFA candidate at the Florida State University's School of Dance and a graduate of Latvia Culture College's contemporary dance program. During my professional career I have performed with ZI.temp dance company, Contemporary Jazz Company MelnZeme, Latvia Concerts production group as well as been the choreographer and artistic director of Catalyst Dance Group in Latvia.
Starting to practice Capoeira at the late age of 17 it became my passion to this day. for the last ten years I have taught classes and workshop, as well as presented the art in cultural and corporate events internationally.
Drawing on the rich history and simple roots of capoeira I make most of my work about people and their humanity. The day to day struggles of the individual in an ever-expanding global landscape tend to take center stage in my pieces.
