My walk in life...
I started my studies in classical dance at Annarella Dance School (currently Private Conservatory of Cuban Ballet in Portugal), where I developed ballet (cuban method) and contemporary dance techniques. I studied at Escola Superior de Dança (Lisboa) where I completed my B.A. degree (Erasmus in Italy).
During my studies I participated in various dance competitions, such as DWC and YAGP, where I won different prizes over the years, and gained contact with many choreographers and international teachers.
I’ve been working as a professional dancer with recognized choreographers and companies, with national and international tours, such as QuorumBallet (Daniel Cardoso); Évora Dance Company; Gonçalo Lobato; Patricia Henriques; Ricardo Ambrósio; North Dance Company; Vortice Dance Company; Ricardo Flores and others.
As a freelancer I integrate various projects beyond the dance context: colaboration at the pos-doc “vectores visio-espatiales de velocidad zero” (Portugal-Argentina with Alejandro Laguna); flashmobs; circus; childhood musicals; videoclips; collaboration at Dance Festivals and/or Intensives like Summer Intensive at Torres Vedras; Performact; Annarella Dance Academy; Youth America Grand Prix (Barcelona and Paris); Dance World Cup (Portugal).
I teach ballet and contemporary dance techniques and I develop projects with my students in various contexts.
I also participated in various Festivals and Competitions, as dancer, and recently I’ve been developing a collaboration with the dancer and choreographer Ricardo Flores (Mexico), that as been presented at various dance festivals, such as Quinzena de Dança de Almada (Lisbon), Sólodos en Danza (Galizia), CICBUNY 2020 (Burgos) and we are working and looking for more collaborations.
I’m currently integrating CORPO Companhia de Dança, as a dancer, an Inclusive Dance Company in Leiria (Portugal) with disabled or non-disabled dancers.
During this years of movement practice, I also did a B.A. in Nursing which I have been practicing as a parallel activity.
