" I see that the art of dance and movement support us in today's society to be more present, and gives wonderful experiences to all ages. One class, one show, one moment at the time "


I am a versetaile and creative soul with an san organized and structured side. I am always looking for ways to learn, develop and share my passion for the art of dance and movement. My performing, creating and teaching sides fuels and strengthens eachother and I have a big hearth for creating. Through different projects I create my own path and workplace in the world of movement, dance, culture and art:


As a dancer I am active with my own creation and performing them ever since my BA. I have shown my work at open stages in different regions of Norway and in 21 and 22 I created two full length productions with own creations in my hometown, Verdal, Trøndelag. My third production Made in Værdaln got its premiere in Trondheim jan 24.  To more info about mye creations, style, thematics etc press the link in the headline.

As a performer for others I have so far toured internationally for years with N.A.R.G by Don.Gnu Physical Theater (DK) and Follow the Vikings Project (GB). In Norway I have worked for Yggdrasil Theater, Vasen Vasiliev/DansiT and Sindri Runudde. I have had roles as a dancer, physical theater performer and actress.

As a pedagogue I have taught kids and youth from 5 to 15 in different styles and levels. Mainly in culture (evening) schools in Rogaland and Trøndelag, Norway. I am also active with my own training and dancing practice for higher level & professionals and wish to do more of that ahead. Training and the quality of it affects my work as a dancer and creator.

I am active with exploring and expressing dance through other mediums than the live format.

Photo and video work

I really love to explore, and another way to do that is experimenting with new elements and mediums where dance and movement can be used. I am an active initiator with the artistic choices of the processes and have collaborated on 45-50 photoshoots since 2012. Photoshoots Page

Then I have been working on dance films since 2015,  working both in front of and behind the camera, including editing. Among this I have created 4 pandemic related dance videos in 20-22 . I am active with developing my editing skills and edits all mine own work reels.  Edited Concepts - Youtube

I look forward to see how these paths will develop the coming years.

Education and teaching

My training background comes from various contemporary dance techniques and improvisation training, physical theater, as well as some ballet, jazz, and acrobatics. Broad, yet focused.

In 2015 I graduated with a bachelor in contemporary dance from the Amsterdam University of the Arts. (Modern Teater Dance Department, MTD). The Bachelor was in 4 years. Last year 2014-2015 was an internship year, where I was out in the working field in different projects. Making me a freelancer since 2014. Comming back to join the graduation performance  june 15 was optional. 

After two years of freelancing (2014-16) . I added teaching and leading others to my skills through PPU (16-17) from the University of Stavanger in Norway. Since then, I have also taught and choreographed for kids and youth in all ages, in different styles and levels.

I started the application game late in my carriere, for real in 2020. Before the pandemic I founded my creations by teaching. We created in our free time and performed for free at open stages.. This somehow was nice, to just go for it, but:

 Now that I have many years in the working-field, I would love to earn more from  dancing and creating as well. Since 2020 I have then, with part times jobs, also written insanely many applications. Things are going forward with the effort put down and I get founding to my projects.

At the same time writing is something I constantly work on getting better in order to get more founding and in that way live more from my artistic work. My experience is that writing well is one of the most important skill in the workingfield in Norway as a (female) dance artist..
