My passion and profession is the moving body. My field of practice is the dance – especially Contact Improvisation. I love to share the dance – first of all by simply dancing with others. But secondarily also through teaching it, which surprisingly connects back to what I originally studied – becomming a high school teacher. So, now I make my living by teaching others to connect to their bodies, to move efficiently and with delight. I support them find their dance and to explore the heartful and intelligent network of encounters in bigger groups.
Teaching workshops and training programs is the major part of my work (dancecontact.de, moving-body.de) next to supporting and organizing festivals (contact-meets-contemporary.de, contact-festival-madrid).
Writing is another way to share my dance, but it is also a tool to understand more clearly my own driving forces, questions, believes and struggles.
I am 45 years old and share the another major part of my life with my wife and my boy.
