has been a folk dance teacher in the Netherlands since 1973. She is
a specialist in Dutch traditional dances and has been writing her own
dances in the same tradition ever since. She took workshops in
Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Belgium and England. She has
published a lot of books in Dutch, but has translated many of her dances
into English for her international workshops. The possibility of sharing
knowledge over the internet with dancers all over the world inspired her
to start this website.
A selection was made from all her dances leaving
out those with a specific copyright. Two tunes (Valsen
til Christine and Henriks Mazurka) could be added with the
kind permission of their writers Carl Erik Lundgaard Jensen and Henrik
Elsche owns an extensive library with books on
Dutch costumes and traditional dances. In case you want to contact her
