My gratitude to all the dancers and teachers who came before me, and those who will come after.
1994-1997 Georgian and other Folk Dances trained with Georgian National Ballet Theater “Metekhi” under G. Potskhishvili, and Youth Dance Company of Tbilisi Philharmonic Music Hall
2013-2014 Inspiring nd memorable Summer courses in modern dance, and improvisation at CREA Amsterdam with Nicola Balhuizen Hepp
From September 2019 – regularly joining weekly classes and workshops in 5 rhythms, with amazing teacher Jup Jansonius. I feel immense respect to the work of Gabrielle Roth and her legacy.
During COVID-19 pandemic, I am grateful to have been able to join daily online classes with amazing teachers from Ecole de Sables. The Acogny Technique is a methodology that fuses nature moves with contemporary dance and was created by the legendary dancer Germaine Acogny.
After years of individual study and practice of whirling, the art of spinning inspired by Sufi dervishes, in 2021 I received valuable instructions by master sacred dancer and transformational teacher, Banafsheh Sayyad into Sama, the holy ritual of whirling.
Psychedelic trance culture
Last but not least, I want to acknowledge and express my gratitude to the Psytrance community, art, and dance culture. Even though raves are considered to be a form of collective entertainment, I have found on the dance floors of Psytrance festivals and family-like gatherings the most safe space to unbound my body. My gratitude goes to all self-taught and genuine dancers with whom I have shared the dance floor and have experienced true ecstasy, exhaustion, and transgression through a collective dance.
“A real ritual!”
Experiential dance is not an act for an audience, neither a style of dancing, it is a personal inquiry, a memory and a way of expression. I am not a professional dancer, neither a performer, but simply a body that dances, like she walks, eats, and sleeps.Lela Mosemghvdlishvili
