Educational activities and leading workshops for dance and movement of recent years
University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (MdW).
Senior Lecturer Dance & Movement at Music and Movement Education / Rhythmics since 2001.

Since 2001 I have been teaching Music and Movement at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
Dance and Movement Education is an incredibly exciting subject for me. Drawing the attention of students to something they were not aware of before enables them to sense the movement in its logical form.

Targeted tasks allow for exploration of movement. In the ocean of options, it is possible to make a decision with complete concentration and at just the right moment. Improvisation is an important part of my classes.

Floor work
Following my studies of Feldenkrais (training and diploma as Feldenkrais Practitioner in Basel 1998-2001), a focus of my classes lies also in the principles of floor work.
