Maria started with latin american dances like Salsa and Bachata in Ghana in 2010. She loved the great level of energy in this dance styles. Since then, she was searching for more and more independency of old fashioned gender roles and got into Tango in Colombia. The close touch in Tango and the creativity of leg movements inspired her quiet some time until she wanted to break free from any role asignment. In 2018, she got into CI in Colombia again and was very moved by the sensitivity of her first CI teacher and the great meaning of listening to oneself and others before and whiles getting into touch. Maria is continously participating in CI workshops and camps - mainly in Germany by now.
Besides her love for movement, she also holds a master's degree in pedagogy. Creating and holding spaces are her main powers. Feminism and emancipation are part of almost everything she touches.
