Studies Ballet in her mother’s dance center with Daniel Lambo, ex-soloist of Maurice Béjart’s Ballets du XXe Siècle, she continues her formation at Rosella Hightower’s in Cannes. Discovers Jazz at age sixteen with Lynn McMurray, impassions herself for this technique and works with famous professors such as Jacques Alberka, Gianin Loringuett, Rick Odums and Bruce Taylor, Rheda, then in New York with Frank Hachett, Jojo Smith and Luigi. Teaches Jazz in Belgium, takes part in many shows as dancer and choreographer and creates a company with her best students. During all her years of teaching, she prides herself to have communicated her passion for dance to her students, formed professors and prepared some for a professional career. Settles in Geneva in 1997 and creates Dance Area.

Over the years, with the invaluable collaboration of great pedagogues, we have succeeded in developing a pre-professional training program that quickly generated young talent. Faced with the lack of a versatile training offer in Europe, it seemed essential to further the offer with a training program bringing the young dancers to the dawn of their professional career.
