Mileen (BE) is a dancer, poet and dance teacher. After her master in social work & pedagogics (UGhent), she graduated at TIP, school of dance, impro & performance in Freiburg (DE), which deepened her love for instant composition, CI and the amazing world of our moving and poetic body. Shortly after she as well fell in love with teaching. She finished a training in education in the arts and since many years now teaches contemporary dance, CI, and instant composition nationally and internationally. In 2013 she started teaching regular CI classes and organizing jams in Ghent (BE) which evolved into a beautiful young and growing community. Mileen develops and teaches the dance trajectories for WISPER, a leading organization for art education for adults in Belgium. Since 2013 she is part of the Belgium based artistic collaboration POST.TRAUM.Collective.
As a performing artist she researches inter-human connections, surrendering to our power, reflexes and instinct, the diverse movement qualities we hold in our bodies, musicality in movement, the fine universes of the different senses and how they connect with space and time, as well as the work of composing in the instant and what that means in a performance setting. Mileen likes to collaborate with artists of other media, looking for common or new artistic languages.
