Marta-Stepien

Marta was born in Poland and she started her dance journey in ballet. During her studies, Marta had the opportunity to perform works by Paulina Wycichowska, Natalia Draganik and Janusz Stolarski. After several years of strict ballet rules, and pushing her body to the limits, she became curious about a more natural way of moving. She wanted to find out how to express herself through her body, but also how to feel pleasure in it. Marta tried to learn how to listen to her body, and how to respond to its needs. She really believes that through this process she can develop a better understanding of who she is as a dancer, but also as a person. During her MA studies on the DAP programme her main focus was performance, however she would also like to explore therapeutic values of dance, that’s why she chose modules like yoga and somatics.
