In 2020 I personally experienced the healing power of sound and music and in 2021 I decided to follow a sound healing training provided by Surya at Akasha Retreat Center.
Combined with modest electronic music production skills and dj-skills from a previous life, I started creating and playing music for holistic healing and dance.
The search and selection of music for ecstatic dance and trance dance sessions and creating immersive dance flows is what I really love doing.
I also like to co-create with another spaceholder. Thereful I'm very gratefull for the beautiful collaborations with Rita (my fellow student from the trance dance facilitator training), Frouke Vermeulen and Karien Detavernier.
In May 2022 I played a first Ecstatic Dance session at a private birthday event: Rebirth Ecstatic Dance @ Krimpvarkie Huisi. 2 more ED sessions followed in the summer of 2022, including Release Your Inner Dancer on September 3.

From August to the end of October 2022, I followed the Trance Dance Facilitator Training by Aernoudt Knecht and got certified.
After a successful first Trance dance session on October 17, monthly Trance Dance sessions will take place starting from January 2023.
