  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early

Completed 3 years of dance training at Rallou Manou Professional Dance School trained in Ballet (Vaganova Method) and Contemporary Dance being taught Limon, Graham and Release Techniques. After graduating I was a former dancer in YELP Contemporary Dance Company (Mariela Nestora) and I worked with the choreographers Aliki Kazouri and Maria Papathanasiou. Simultaneously, I continued my training with practitioners in Release Technique such as David Zabrano, Tono Lachky and Martin Kilvady (Les Slovaks) and Jozef Frucek (Fighting Monkey). I graduated from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama after completing the MA in Movement Studies. My studies focused on Movement Diretion, Choreography for theatre and Actor’s Movement training including Laban Movement Analysis, Lecoq's Technique and other movement training techniques such as Mask, Viewpoints and Litz Pisk Movement. Through my studies and research I started to merge my knowledge of dance and Release Technique to create my own practice and creae workshops addressed to actors. I have facilitated movement workshops at Arts Ed, East 15, University of Portsmouth and Weston College in the UK and FONACT in France. I am working across the theatre as Movement Director and I am intrerested in theatrical Chorus work and building Ensembles. I assisted the choreographer Siân Williams at the Shakespeare's Globe. As dancer I have worked with the choreographers Jo Meredith, Jorge Cresis and Masha Gurina. Currently I am attending the JVIntensive which is a programme to learn and explore the techniques and the methodology of Jasmin Vardimon Company.
