Coming from a Classical Ballet training background, she endeavours to raise the standards of this technique and integrates its principles in her choreographic style which reflects beauty of line, quality of movements, and intrinsic footwork. Her choreographies encompass these qualities with a sense of harmony, fluidity, and effortlessness.
