It was with my first Trance Dance experience that I realised that there was a movement behind the movement, there was a point of surrender that I still had not reached.

I started my career in Human Resources, with the dream that I could change something in the business world... but after some years of struggling and trying to be someone that I really wasn't, I realised that I could give much more of myself if I followed my own dream.

I was "rescued" by dancing in the form of Biodanza classes. My movement become more meaningful, I become more self confident and more able to express myself through the body. In the meanwhile I also discovered active meditations and Trance Dance. And it was with my first Trance Dance experience that I realised that there was a movement behind the movement, there was a point of surrender that I still had not reached.

Searching for this moment of surrender, I did a Soul Hunting Retreat with Wilbert Alix and went for the Trance Dance Facilitator Training... "just for the experience", I said... I didn't want to be a Trance Dance Facilitator! No way! I was ending my first year of the Biodanza Facilitator training and becoming a Trance Dance Facilitator was not on my plans! I was too "busy" so I said...

Since then, almost four years ago, I kept on dancing at the Trance Dance Rituals, as a participant and as a "guardian". More and more I went for it, surrendering, dissolving myself completely in the dance. And then one day it took me! And I had to do my own Trance Dance Ritual! Then is when  I moved from the comfortable space of being a "helper", giving support to other facilitators, to the center of the room and assuming myself as a Facilitator. And I'm loving it!

My dream? To be able to take the music, the laughter, the joy of movement to groups of people and to the business world. To work with people on their personal development through movement, creativity and expression.
