Memories of dance by a music teacher

  • Carlijn Otten / music in education

Carlijn Otten, music teacher: “I really wanted to do a minor at the ArtEZ School of Dance, but it didn’t exist. So my department head and I decided to write a show ourselves. I assembled all my dancers and spent one and a half years working towards this final product. My show consists of experiences from my own life. I created an abstract story from concrete memories, so that the audience can form their own picture of what they see. The final production earned a grade of 9 out of 10 and I got lots of positive responses from the people in the audience. It inspired me to continue combining my disciplines of music and dance.”
