With Freediving Dancer she wanted to combine the passion of dance with that of diving by creating dance videos in the water without breathing, reaching discrete depths without fins. The search for movement in water is carried out both in the pool and in the sea where it is possible to put into practice the various dance techniques compatibly with the different environmental conditions that nature offers.
She is passionate about cinema, for which she follows seminars and film reviews, she often uses particular cinematographic references and techniques in video editing experiments.
