Dancer and Dance Instructor

I used to be a competitive ballroom dancer. Now I am a Salsa and Kizomba dancer and instructor. I travel all around Europe and the world to explore and exchange ideas and share a wonderful time on the dancefloor as well as in workshops with many international salsa dancers and teachers.

With my partner Yasemin I teach Salsa New York Style on a regular basis in a wide range from beginner classes to a performance team. We are also booked for workshops on congresses, I am a Salsa DJ:

    History

    I started dancing in the late 90s and quickly moved on to competitive ballroom dancing in Die Residenz Münster. Together with my partners I danced on several regional and national championships with mixed results. ;-) We were also members of the federal state team and attended quite a few world ranking competitions.

    I quit ballroom dancing in late 2010 for personal reasons and immediately started dancing socially on salsa events in Münster. I also attended three classes at once, including three beginner classes in a row and started teaching after less than one year. Although it is usually not a great idea to teach that early, my experience in dancing and teaching ballroom helped me to communicate my ideas confidently.
