I ‘m Daphne. I was 4 years old when I started my first ballet lessons. This was the beginning of my love for dance. Later I also followed lessons modern, jazz and tap.
In 1994 I started my dance-education at the Dance Academy of Tilburg.
Later on in 1995 I started my education for teacher of classical jazz at the same academy. In 2000 I got my diploma. In my time at the academy, I worked with several choreographers like Mr. Fisher, Dagmar Horn, Aldrico and Adriaan Lutyn. After my graduation I have worked on a production of NDT (Jyri Kylian).
Since 2000 I teach ballet at the Leiden Ballet & Theatre. I am also coordinator of the pre-professional program.
