"First of all, I was trained in circus. My path has quietly deviated towards dance. My questioning about my practice and my relationship to the movement led me to Stephanie's classes first and then to BIG BANG. I wanted to progress technically, to flourish and to put myself in danger. The accompaniment, the openness and the rigor that Stephanie offers allowed me to develop myself as an artist. Sharing experiences in a small group, being surrounded by artists with different backgrounds inspired me and stimulated me a lot".
