Accepting International Applications

Groundwork is a one week professional development program for dancers and choreographers.

If you have a background in Hiphop, Dancehall, Krumping, Afrobeats, or House, and you want to learn /improve your skills in the dance theatre sector, this program is for you.

I am excited to be one of the guest teachers on the program, but a whole line up is awaiting for you!

It is a residential program, in other words, you will stay, sleep, eat and create all week in Destelheide, an amazing arts centre.

 

We are opening up a few spots for international artists.

Belgian dancers: applications are closed.

Internationals: apply ASAP or before 28th SEPT.

 

If you get selected, it only costs 120€ to do the program! (And yes that includes accommodation and food 3 meals / day).

Applicants from outside of Belgium, you will just have to travel to Brussels by your own means. The rest is taken care of by the organisation.

Take a leap of faith, of purpose, of freedom

May you all have the confidence, trust & power, to make YOUR leap of faith
.
I’ll share my story cause some of you are going through something similar
.
I was a dance teacher for +/- 20 years (I started young). While I liked teaching, and while I was good at it, my heart kept saying that my true path was elsewhere
.
During the last few years, I kept teaching dance in the hope that some day – one day, the big creative vision will come true and I’ll be able to – finally – follow my true purpose & STOP teaching
.
Yes I liked it. Every class. But I knew it wasn’t my calling, it was not the WHY I was on earth for
.
Yes I was good at it but I’m good at many things. And I learned that being good at something doesn’t mean you should do it
.
Jan 2018: I was living in HOPE, hope for a life change and a business REFOCUS
.
Dance Theatre, Dance Storytelling, creating shows, and teaching THIS to students: that’s what makes my heart beat, and that’s what I wanted to do full time – not half the time
.
May 2018: I stopped teaching dance, only taught a tiny bit since
.
In the words of Lisa Nichols – my vision went from OPTIONAL to NON NEGOTIABLE
.
I had no back up plan though
.
While it felt liberating, it came with financial pressure
.
Big part of my business was based on it. But it felt RIGHT
.
I trusted SOMETHING would come up in my energetic field
.
I was literally telling the Universe / God / my Guardian Angels / Green Tara: I am READY, tell me, what’s next
.
Two months of chaotic uncertainty later, I received a place at the International School of Theatre of Jacques Lecoq in Paris
.
A dream come true
.
I landed… I am safe… until my next leap of faith
.
As a choreographer / theatre director / comedy specialist – I’m taking things to a next level. Time to play EXTRA BIG
.
Wishing you to play big, trust, and make YOUR own personal leap… and you’ll land safely
.
