Functional Training training!

Car Free Sunday 2016 – Jane Fonda workout!

Now to add more skills to my palette as a teacher and coach – Functional Trainer! Looking forward to more study and a Post Graduate Diploma in Functional Training. I will specialise in how to help dancers protect their bodies from injury, and bring dance knowledge to this sports training. Get yourselves ready for new workshop proposals from Radical Moves!

ACC Accreditation renewed

I’m proud to say that I was able to renew my ICF ACC accreditation again after 4 years, which involves a certain amount of study and mentor coaching. It’s been a struggle to get there with babies, and I’m happy to have made it. Thanks to Vanessa Noorani from ICF for making an exception to the rules (they don’t usually take pregnancy into account in the deadline) and extending the possibility for me to complete.

Back to Bal Moderne

Dear All, yes, I’ve been out of touch – I got started with a draft post to tell you I would be working at Kunstenhumaniora Brussel for 6 months, then got sidetracked it seems with babies! Sorry!! This huge challenge has just ended, so now I can start organising other things.

First up Bal Moderne:

Come and join us this Saturday 16 June, 17-18hr!

Check out the agenda page for upcoming workshops/classes.

Maternity Leave

Keep calm, expecting twins

yes, really!

 

So, it’s almost time for the twins Alex & Lila to arrive. I will be taking care of them for a while, with my first moment back teaching at ImPulsTanz 2017 in July. Until then please continue to send me your requests for teaching & coaching for summer, and the season 2017-18. I wish you a wonderful spring!
