"Dance has been present in my life since my early childhood. I have danced jazz ballet, flamenco, musical dances, contemporary, and contact dance. I started learning Oriental dance 20 years ago. Over the years, I have gained dance experience from both domestic and foreign instructors. Both technique and artistic expression are equally important to me in dance.In Hungary, my most influential teachers were Mercedes Nieto and Judit Virág. I have been a member and co-founder of the SzövegTest ensemble and TeátRoom Home Theatre since 2019.I have been a jury member of the Hungarian Fusion Belly Dance Competition in 2022 and 2023. I have been the leader and instructor of the Rhea Fusion Dance School since 2016.
I continuously educate myself, with one of the most notable experiences being studying and passing examinations in Zoe Jakes' accredited dance program DanceCraft.In 2022, I appeared as a belly dancer in the Hungarian-produced TV series titled 'Tündérkert,' based on the novel by Zsigmond Móricz."
