In this space, I realised that I wanted freedom in my dance in the sense
that I no longer wanted to learn other steps, moves and choreographies,
which mostly have no meaning connected to movement.
I promised myself that I would master improvisation;
learn the tools, techniques and ways of expressing myself freely through dance,
learn to understand how to choreograph through improvisation
and develop my performing skills by studying acting and improvisation techniques, learn how to incorporate martial arts and Eastern meditation practices into my daily practice and teach dance without showing the moves, steps and choreographies for participants to copy and learn from.
And in this space, I noticed a sparkle of creation, which I started to ride, and then I realised that I was already improvising, choreographing and teaching other dancers my insights!
But I didn’t know how to continue. I was tied up in the company repertoire and other projects and I was afraid of leaving this financial security to chase my dreams. How will I make a living if I will travel around the world spending money and looking for knowledge to master the improvisation?
In 2000 finalIy I took a leap of faith and I left academic and institutional frames of dance and started to implement improvisation into everything I was doing and learning on the way.
