De Grote Belgische Dansvitrine

Elise Claes

Elise is 17 years old and graduating this year from the ! Kunsthumaniora Hedendaagse Dans (secondary school for contemporary dance) in Wilrijk. She is an extravert and full of positive energy, which is something she likes to show in her choreographies. Her source of inspiration is human beings. She observes the human body and the posture of strangers to come up with a story that offers her a starting point. The most important thing for Elise is discovering her own values and expressing them, in dance as much as other aspects of life.

“I want to keep challenging myself and I hope the Dance Showcase can give me a boost.”
