“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.”
Speaking of Dance seeks to define, learn, observe and conceptualize principles, but above all is a journey. Its fulfillment takes place by experiencing it in our body - in its wholeness. Moments of strong sense of existence and observation. This is my personal experience and what I wish to share throw teaching . Training is a lesson about investigation , revelations , agreement, sensing, being in the moment. Recognize patterns of movement and of thought .
Trough being aware, altering habits and achieving improvement , in our body as well as in our life. Being creatively and alive.
By learning and teaching I explore what and how to teach in the context of motor , intellectual and emotional aspects. Trying to combine the logic of the movement with holistic experience – enabling integration between thought, feelings, emotions and action -unity of mind, body and spirit . Teaching is a dialogue that invites self interpretation and discoveries. As a teacher, I believe in offering options - organizing principles, to enable the dancers to be more clear in his "say" and his movement. As for technique, I'm interested in ways to get organic movement without extra mussels efforts – to modulate effort in its officiate way. Tuning for optimal organization of the body, searching for images that invite the dance to take place within the body. Imagination as catalysts for changing motor-movement behavior.
I am a mother to Adva, Yoav and Nadav ,who are a source of inspiration for authenticity and creativity, and are teaching me about freedom and listening. Partner to Sagi, who enrich and accompanies the ongoing investigation process.

הגוף השלם מושג שטוותה טוד (1939) ההוראה עבורי היא דיאלוג.. מזמינה לגילוי ופרשנות אישית..אני רוצה להציע אפשרויות בתוכן יוכלו הרוקדים להיות ברורים יותר במה שהם רוצים לומר,או באיך שהם רוצים לנוע. באשר לטכניקה אני מחפשת דרכים להגיע לתנועה אורגנית ונטולת מאמצים מיותרים המדברת עם ההיגיון הפנימי של ארגון הגוף, תרה אחר דימויים שמזמינים את המחול להתחולל בתוככי הגוף.
אני אימא לאדווה יואב ונדב שהם מקור השראה לאוטנטיות וליצירתיות (ומלמדים אותי על חופש והקשבה), בת זוג לשגיא שמזין ומתלווה לכל מסעות החקירה . מורה ותלמידה , יוצרת ורוקדת.
