I WANTED EVERY MORNING WAS TO DANCE AND SING.

INTERVIEW

WHY DO WE SING? 

SINGING IS ONE OF THE GREATEST FORMS OF EXPRESSION ANYONE CAN EXPERIENCE. 

IT IS ALL ABOUT BREATHING DEEP, BALANCE, CONNECTION TO YOUR FEELINGS AND SINGING IT ALL OUT. 

IT FEELS LIKE THE BEST THERAPY. 

IF YOU START TO EXPERIENCE YOUR OWN VOICE AND HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO SING OUT LOUD IT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE ALL DAY LONG. 

SING SING SING AND SING AGAIN ;)

WHAT DOES ACTING MEAN TO YOU? 

ACTING MEANS REACTING. ACTING IS REACTING. I DON´T THINK THAT´S A SECRET. 

ACTING BASICS ARE AN IMPORTANT THING FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO DIRECT OR ACT.

HOW DO YOU WANT TO DIRECT IF YOU DON`T KNOW HOW TO ACT. THINK OF YOURSELF BEING A CHILD AND EXPERIENCES THE WORLD AROUND FOR THE FIRST TIME. 

SOME THINGS YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO EXPERIENCE  YOURSELF. YOU CAN`T READ ABOUT IT IN A BOOK.

ACTING WILL BECOME VERY SIMPE FROM THE MOMENT YOU STOP TO ACT.

JUST BE YOURSELF.

WHAT KIND OF DANCE STYLE YOU LIKE THE MOST?

IF YOU ASK ME TO CHOOSE BETWEEN DIFFERENT STYLES MY ANSWER WILL BE VERY SIMPLE ‘ I LOVE THEM ALL’. 

WHEN MUSIC PLAYS YOUR BODY STARTS TO TALK THROUGH MOVEMENT. 

DANCE IS USUALY BETTER TO UNDERSTAND THAN SPOKEN WORDS. 

IT´S A DIRECT CONNECTION TO WHAT YOU FEEL. SIMPLY CALLED BODY LANGUAGE . 

THE WAY I LIKE TO MOVE DEPENDS SIMPLY ON THE WAY I GET INSPIRED.

AND THAT CAN BE ANY STYLE OF MUSIC.

CAN YOU GIVE ME A SHORT ANSWER WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE FOLLOWING SHOWS YOU HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN?

 

DISNEY`S THE LION KING?

TO WORK WITH THE LION AS RESIDENT DIRECTOR SHAPES YOU FOR LIFE. 

THE LION KING FAMILY TAKES YOU ON A JOURNEY TO THE PRIDE LANDS AND MAKES YOU BELIEVE IN SPIRITS. 

 

CATS?

IF YOU ARE PRIVILEGED TO HAVE DONE THE SHOW YOU FEEL LIKE A LEGEND. MY BODY HAS PROPERLY BEEN IN THE BEST CHAPE OF MY WHOLE CAREER. SKIMBLESHANKS, WE HAD THE BEST TIME RIDING THAT TRAIN. 

 

DIRTY DANCING?

SOMETHING FOR THE ROMANTICS. 

THE STORY MAKES YOU BELIEVE  THAT YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. 

MY FIRST CHALLENGE AS A DANCECAPTAIN. 

GREAT EXPERIENCE.  

 

DISNEY´S AIDA?

DEFINITELY STILL CAPTURED BY THE BEAUTY OF THIS SHOW. 

THE STORY, DIRECTION AND THE CHOREOGRAPHY MAKES IT TO ONE OF MY FAVORITES. 

I AM STILL LISTENING TO THE MUSIC AND I AM IN LOVE.
