About Me


To be in the moment. To share the dance. To inspire & encourage. To Love.


I found myself in the dance: contact improvisation, argenitnean tango, salsa, house, hip-hop, contemporary... Thus I'm always very happy to meet people who are somehow connected to dance and music.
I love to teach.
I love to learn different languages.
I love to travel for dance reasons and meet new people and cultures.
I like to give and to get bodywork/massage/reiki. :)
I like deep and inspiring talks.
I enjoy cooking and trying new meals.
I'm open minded, friendly, communicative and at the same time I like peace and silence.
I'm travelling, doing and exploring many things mostly on my own. Usually I come with some plan: to attend a workshop, participate in the festival and etc. Thus I won't ask you to entertain me, but I'm happy to share my presence with you if you have time!


Who else will do that, if not me?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The one that comes to my mind now:
Travel to Mongolia. Experiencing simplicity and slow "speed". Meditating on a horse, and sometimes galloping like one being, with a great joy and tears. Experiencing spaciousness of the nature. Feeling a great connection to Mongolian song, music and dance.

Another one:
Birth. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach dance (contact improvisation, house, hip-hop, some tango or salsa), Russian and Lithuanian languages. I can share my bodywork/massage skills :)
I like to learn languages, things connected with dance, movement and body, and also music (playing drums, guitar...).
Anyway, I always learn from each moment and people around.
