Working as a choreographer is truly my hearts desire. I always had the feeling that I have to express my ideas by creating my own movement style. My main focus is on the fusion of Classical Dance and Martial Arts combined with my own style. The human body and its extraordinary anatomical possibilities offer much more than the classical sense of beauty. Creatural elements and animalistic moves help me to create a very unique appearance. I call this specific combination of movement language and instinctive content: Natiism
