Elske Seidel, based in Berlin, is a passionate CI dancer & teacher, deeply committed to CI and its community internationally. She has been teaching dance full time and wholeheartedly for over two decades, CI since 2004.
In her teaching she believes in opening spaces where dance in all its vital magic and play can emerge and simply happen. Her work draws from nature as a teacher and values doing little – slowly – so the experience of the participants can expand into the space she holds. [Videos]
