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.

Summer Fun!


My daily inspiration for moving (from Left: Alex & Lila) will be joining me this summer in Vienna for ImPulsTanz! 🙂  Check out my summer teaching plans. See you soon!

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!

May News



This spring is all about being, in the present moment!

Present Performing workshop @ Isadora Festival (Krasnoyarsk, Russia/Russie) – 17-20 May 2016

Being – performance @ Isadora Festival (Krasnoyarsk, Russia), 21 May

:present participle of verb “be” (am, are, was, were); noun – a living organism

This instantly composed solo is based on the rollercoaster of emotions, questions & reflections on life Susanne experienced recently, after close encounters with death.  What is left after so much loss? What is gained? How is life coloured indelibly by this experience?
Movement, sound & text are combined in the present moment to create this fleeting, unrepeatable performance, as the present is all we really have.
Live. Love. Life.

“Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.” – Allen Saunders
