About me

My gratitude and acknowledgement to all dancers and teachers who shared with me joy of dance.

Folk Dances

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

Modern Dance

2013-2014 Inspiring nd memorable Summer courses in modern dance, and improvisation at CREA Amsterdam with Nicola Balhuizen Hepp

Gaga People

From 1 August 2018 to 1st May 2019, danced Gaga People weekly at the Chasse Dance Studios, Amsterdam, with teachers: Ian Robinson, Tamir Eting, and Keren Rosenberg.

5Rhythms

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.

Acogny Technique

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.

Whirling dance

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.
