Thoughts on #QKDI

After months of planning, brainstorming sessions and preparations, our long-awaited QKDI 2014 Dance Intensive finally happened. 4 Days of dance.

Our first collaboration, BC 2011 - feels like yesterday and aeons ago!

This for me is already the third year (!) of summer dance collaboration with the fabulous Queenie of Belgium and I have to say, despite us both being nervous (as always, ha!) about all of the things, QKDI 2014 exceeded all of our (already very high) expectations in every way. 

QKDI2014 - after the facts!

The weekend turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for; 4 days of intensive dance training, in collaboration with excellent and dedicated professional teachers (including guest classes in ballet by Constanze Janssen and popping by Obelixx!),  practicing and integrating skills from different dance 'worlds' and sharing our love for the art with a group of like-minded, kind hearted, highly motivated and hard-working dance loving people. 

In other words: 'Just. Dance.' <3

And also, snacks.

Dancer snax!

A huge thank you goes out to miss Constanze Janssen for the fabulous ballet classes and pearls of dance wisdom, to Mr Marco Obelixx Menezes for sharing his art and introducing us to the world of popping, and last but not least to miss Queenie Dance for sharing her knowledge, her gorgeous dancing, the fabulous co-teaching experience and just for being yer lovely self.

Big hugs also to our QKDI2014 participants, as said before, it was a true delight to be able to spend 4 full days working with a group of such sincere dance lovers ♥♥♥ 


QKDI2014 has left me (even now, after a full week of tax return, web updates and administration ^^) uplifted, motivated and extremely inspired, and I have a feeling this event will 'stick with me' for a long time. 

Thank you.

Double rainbow. Just because. :)
