De Grote Belgische Dansvitrine

Jolien Baeyens

Jolien Baeyens is a master’s student in Sports and Exercise Sciences at KU Leuven. She has always had a great passion for dance, but it wasn’t until she was 17 that she decided to fully pursue it. Throughout her journey, she has overcome many obstacles. She often trained alone and had many ideas but lacked a platform to develop them. Three years ago, she finally started choreographing for the dance company at KU Leuven. In the beginning, it was a process of figuring out how to approach it, what worked, what didn’t, and how to convey this to her dancers. That’s why she decided to study part-time to focus as much as possible on her dance.

Why Jolien is participating in De Dansvitrine:

“Despite having more time, I still missed feedback. I wanted to know how professionals viewed my work and what they would adjust, and for that, De Dansvitrine was the perfect opportunity. Apparently, I’m doing something right :)”
