Although we live in a time when information is so easily accessible through the Internet, and thus one can also save space and manage the knowledge digitally, a real library filled with books, which one can touch, smell, and feel their physical presence, has always had a very special charm on me.

My own reading space, combined with a cozy work area, in which I can always go back to find peace and inspiration, which makes it possible to simply enjoy a scientific book or a novel in seclusion, in the times of smartphones, tablets, e-books and so on, creates a very special to me living atmosphere.

Why is education important to me?

My work demands to be always up-to-date and to know a lot about the emerging and historical development of dancing, in order to be able to offer professional and authentic training contents. Therefore, I am constantly looking for qualitative contents and new sources of information to expand my knowledge and repertoire.
