About me

I am a freelance dancer. Besides creating and performing I give contemporary dance lessons and contact improvisation workshops for professionals, future professionals and amateurs.

I am a certified massage therapist. An intensive work with the body has led me to techniques that restore the body's balance and harmonize our being.

In dance and massages I find what interests me: free, liberated, receptive, connected and conscious body, energy, touch, present moment, sharing, nonverbal communication, community…

I graduated with a MA in History from Charles University in Prague, but I have dedicated myself to dance and movement, which has been an interest of mine since childhood.

M. Popovici, Jan Kodet etc.) with theater directors (Petra Tejnorová and Jiří Havelka for VerTeDance, Daniel Špinar for National Theatre in Prague etc.), with musicians (Zrní, Beata Hlavenková, Clarinet Factory, Prague Improvisation Orchestra etc.)
