Originally from Gouda, Netherlands, & trained at the Rotterdam Dance Academy and the High School of the Performing Arts, Amsterdam. In Europe I danced with Dancetheatre Arena, working with choreographers Suzy Blok, Christopher Steel, Conny Janssen, Thierry Smits & Kim van der Boon, Foundation Satori (Netherlands); Compagnie THOR (Belgium), Tempo Dances (GB) and Bronkhorst & Jongewaard (Netherlands). In 1998 I performed in The Fall, a piece which garnered acclaim as "the dance document of the 90's," receiving the coveted Prix du Bonheur du Rue St. Denis in Paris, France.
As a choreographer I have presented my own work in theaters in Great Britain, Germany, former Yugoslavia, Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands, United States, Canada & Mexico. I created the piece “Erasmus Spitzen, Crossing a Bridge on Points,” which premiered at the International Rotterdam Film Festival and is currently part of various northern Europe art video collections & museums.
In the Tri-State area my most influential project was the hilarious “Burger Nation,” presented May 2004 at the Flea Theater in collaboration with Martha Williams/ The Movement Movement. Over the years I have shown works at the DanceNow Festival, Catch Series/ Galapagos Art Space, The Flea Theater, Photographic Gallery, the Puffin Room, d.u.m.b.o. Dance Festival, COOL NY Dance Festival, WAX Works, Construction Company, SWEAT at DeBaun Auditorium & Out Of Doors, Go! Dance Festival, Montclair State University theaters, Wien Theater in Fairfield CT, & Citigroup Theater at the Alvin Ailey Center, among others.
Currently I am a soloist with Jennifer Muller/ The Works & guest artist with Hysterica Dance Company. I teach master classes throughout the US, northern Europe, Mexico, Bolivia, and Thailand and organize the HATCH Presenting Series.
