With a background in theatre, dance, and yoga, I was always eager to explore anything that had to do with movement. I am a certified yoga instructor, a soon-to-be bachelor in contemporary dance, and a somatic movement practitioner. It is my passion to inspire others through my embodied toolkit of self-discovery. I believe that life is creation and I am the happiest when I create… anything really, a piece of pottery, a song, a dance…

Life is creation

These are some of the choreographies I created during my university studies. I like to find inspiration through poetry and music. The Timekeeper for instance was inspired by Mitch Albom’s The Time Keeper an inspirational fiction about the first man on earth to count the hours, and the tragic relationship between time and death. A more cheerful piece, Dreams was inspired by Meszecsinka’s Lullaby and all the magical creatures that appear in our dreams.

I also love to work through improvisation. In fact, some of the most interesting creations came to me spontaneously. Inspired by the light conditions of my dance space very early one morning, Shadows was created through play, it was an unplanned pleasant surprise. I also used improvisation when experimenting with interdisciplinary arts. Connection was one of the end products of an experiment using paint, dance improvisation, and digital technologies.

Although watching others dance is pleasurable, I believe that the greatest pleasure is when we allow ourselves the time and space to discover our own bodies. Thus, it is my goal and mission to share the love of improvisation and movement meditation with all who cross my path. Waves is a short extract of my movement exploration project focusing on the fluidity of the body, while Root and Flow demonstrates how floor-work can be used as a form of a grounding movement practice.

My aim is to continue delivering quality teacher training while also enriching my student’s experience through dance and somatic practices. I am open to collaborating with other training and retreat centers, and I would also be interested in teaching dance and somatic practices in vocational schools. Besides, I wish to explore further possibilities in dance making and I am interested in collaborating on interdisciplinary projects. 



Performance Practice

As part of my studies at the University of Malta, namely the Professional Practice and Performance module, I participated in the creation, development, and performance of several pieces. Choreographers included three Maltese artists, namely Maria Agius Muscat, Patsy Chetcuti, and Dorian Mallia, and also Berlin-based Brazilian choreographer Ricardo de Paula. Here are some of the teasers that were recorded during our creative process.
