What is ,,Move Perform Tell” about?
My blog is about dance – particularly about training in ballet, jazz, modern and hip hop, about teaching to classes ranging from creative movement to adult beginners, about finding and choosing music and about my inspirations.

Why was this title chosen?
The title ,,Move Perform Tell” is to reflect what dance means to me:

Move – This is an easy one: Dance is the art of movement. It adds motion to stories and expresses feelings through movement. At the same time, moving stands for another aspect of dance – for training and for technique.

Perform – A performance does not have to be in front of people. You perform if you have finished the piece of art you have been creating and put the pieces together to create a whole.

Tell – Not every dance has a deep meaning, but some do. There may be a story behind a dance, there may just be a feeling behind it. This is controversial, but personally I think that even a dance that was solemnly made to entertain is a dance that tells.
