With her research into movement and rhythm, Eve’s approach to understanding traditional oriental dance is original, well structured and playful. Thanks to light-hearted exercises, students learn to use the body’s fundamental mechanisms (spiral patterns, balance) in conjunction with the laws of physics (gravity, centrifugal forces, pendulum, pulsation).
This constitutes the essence of all arab-oriental dances but also afro-latin dances. It is the key to achieving fluidity, presence, the saving of energy, improvisation, memory and the sense of rhythm. Without it, there is only "sport" and the dance is becoming westernised.
Moving from the western way (mental/muscular) to the eastern way (energetic), learning to "not do", requires careful work and is a unique experience. It also enriches the practice of other arts (authenticity, awareness and fluidity) and improves the quality of movement in every day life (ergonomics).
Eve has taught dance in a variety of structures and for a variety of audiences : dance schools like K-Danse, Mandorla Ballet School and Académie Yantra (Brussels), Mouvement! Ecole des Arts et du Spectacle (Waterloo), private centres like Aspria/La Rasante and Royal Léopold Club (Brussels), cultural centres like De Westrand (Dilbeek), associations like "Al Andalous" (Brussels, 2006), Loisirs et Santé (Brussels, 2016).
She also organizes her own projects like dance workshops with musicians (see Projects), lessons or workshops in collaboration with other actors (e.g. "Le centre et l'énergie" with a Qi Gong teacher in 2007) or with invited teachers to allow people to discover dances from Middle-East or gypsy dances : Karavan Festival (see Projects).
