About the instructor

Cindy is an artist wearing many hats: Choreographer & Director, Dancer & Performer, Dance-storyteller & Playwright, Dance Entrepreneur.

Born and raised in Belgium, Cindy has been based in London since 2005. She is a true dance backpacker. She collected invaluable human experiences alongside her artistic path (USA, Jamaica, Europe, Trinidad, Africa, Venezuela, etc.). 

In addition to her international dance training, her dance storytelling path was nourished by her training in NYC / London / Paris, doing courses in acting, improv comedy, screenwriting, writing for comedy, and physical theatre. 

Cindy has been the recipient of several awards in London (ADAD Trailblazers, Artists International Development Fund, Bonnie Bird UK New Choreography Fund, etc.).

Passionate about using Dancehall, Hiphop and Krumping in Theatre, telling meaningful and hard hitting stories through dance, in 2014 she was commissioned by the most renown Dance Theatre venue in London, Sadler’s Wells, her show "Wild Card: Dancehall Takeover" was the first full Dancehall Theatre night in London (sold out).

Cindy’s aim is to tell electrifying stories through dance. She has presented work internationally (UK, Belgium, Hollywood, San Francisco, Jamaica, etc.). Her unstoppable fountain of energy is her signature. Her shows are artistic earthquakes touching people’s souls and hearts through laughter and tears.

Full-length productions include: “Voices in The Alleyway, “Is My Whining Winding You Up?” and “School Fi Wifey”. She is currently focussing on her two solos: “Time is ticking, phone is ringing” and “Things aren’t always black or white”. She was involved as a choreographer in many shows tackling police brutality in a variety of countries: USA / UK / Belgium.

Cindy has also set up international dance exchanges (1000 Pieces Puzzle), and many coaching programs for choreographers/dancers, providing platforms of professional development, artistic discovery and leadership.

Alongside a full schedule of choreography, performances and coaching dance artists, she can still be spotted for a boogie in dance studios in London, teaching and sharing her love for Dancehall..
