Natasa is a dancer and dance scholar from Athens who is interested in the interrelation of the performing arts with research and social change. She acquired her dance diplomas and teacher certificates from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD, UK) and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD, UK). While continuing her professional development in tap dance, body music and other percussive dances, she completed an MA in Dance Anthropology, making her the first Greek graduate of Choreomundus: International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice, and Heritage (2014). The combination of performing arts and humanities motivates her to work in the areas of activism and cultural management. Natasa now explores percussive dances as tools of inclusion for vulnerable groups and minorities in an attempt to collaborate with non-dominant protagonists and art forms. She is currently implementing her new intergenerational dance project, “MoAM” (Moving Around Music), as a fellow at START - Create Cultural Change 2017/18.
