After ballett training and dual motherhood I took up my first profession as an art teacher.
At 32 years I found my way back to and trained in Modern, Jazz and Afro Dance. With creative and innovative docents, from 1978 I performed in the "Tanzhaus NRW" in Düsseldorf, summer academies in Cologne and at the international dance weeks in Bonn. Between 1983 and 1985 I was a member of dance theatre group 41DU; afterwards I created solo and group performances together with visual artists between 1985 and 2002.
