Landsberg am Lech, Germany
What Moves You?
“As a dancer I tell stories through movements with my body, no words needed. I just dance everything that I want to express. Those who see, will understand and feel it. This is what is fascinating…this is my passion. For me dancing is as important as breathing is for a non-dancer.
-‘The instrument by which the dance expresses itself is also the instrument by which life is lived: the human body!’ – Martha Graham”
