Since starting at such a young age she has reached a good level in handstand, Icarian games (foot juggling with people), floor acrobatics, teeterboard, silks and vertical rope.
She continued her professional circus training in a French circus school Le Lido. The school is internationally known for its strong focus on physical theatre. The school is concentrated on one discipline, in her case silks. Which is her signature discipline. She is also a verified Pilate’s instructor and uses this in her teaching to prevent injuries due to wrong movement patterns.

She is currently working in France on her own projects connecting circus and other art forms. She has been teaching Silks and Icarian games internationally.

“I teach everyone as an individual, listening to your goals and needs. I wish all my students to find their personal way of working and being in the air. Circus is a world filled whit never ending possibilities and that’s how I think training should be considered. As a fun and creative never-ending learning process.”
