Her attraction to music, dance and the visual arts in general is encouraged and supported by her parents. She will follow various training in singing, piano, solfege and dance and will graduate of the Beaux-Arts in Lorient in 2004.

Between 2003 and 2009, several collaborations with performing artists will shape her perception of the body, its relationship to Time, Space and the Other. She  is passionate about scenography, decorative painting, performance, street entertainment …

From 2006 until 2015, flamenco takes an increasingly important place in her artistic life, with trips between Belgium and Spain to study with artists and masters such as Coral Vados, Federico Ordonez, Marisol Valderama, Juana Amaya.

Her collaboration between 2012 and 2015 with the jazz flamenco group Trovadotres, in Brussels, will enable her to start on stage as a soloist and to create many choreographies and rhythmic arrangements with the complicity and the unwavering confidence of Louis Henry, the leader and composer of the group.

During this time, a decisive meeting will allow her to deepen her approach and to free herself from all styles to enter the authenticity of his artistic path and the Breath of his love for the Dance.

In 2014, she discovered the richness of the choreophic teachings of Yumma Mudra and Michel Raji, which she practices constantly until today, through her research and artistic creations and the workshops that she has since given to various audiences.

It offers intensive workshops around rhythm (often flamenco), a work of body awareness, space and rhythm, to release its authentic movement while remaining anchored in its center.

She also works with children to create musicals (School of the Stage).But her most cherished and most rewarding experience as a teacher and artist is the rhythm movement workshop she proposed at the Le Code de l’Equipe (Brussels) day center, thanks to the trust Anne Nouwynck and her collaborators. To release the movement thanks to the rythm and the pulsation common between the members of the group and the music to observe gradually the people out of their inhibitions.
