I started learning dance at the age of 5 as a figure skater in my native Kiev. I studied ballet, various forms of folklore and Argentine tango. I have lived in four countries. London had been my home for more than 15 years, and it's there that I discovered contemporary dance. I am a LABAN graduate and 'contemporary' approach is now part of everything I do. I belive dance has a wider place in the society and creativity can bring happiness. That's why I spend most of my life in various studios and creative spaces around the world - choreographing, performing, learning or helping others to learn.
