Having worked with Aleksandra on a few occasions, my experience of her movement and art is at once transformative, yet matter of fact. She embodies a clarity and richness that is compelling. Being thoroughly rooted and grounded in the human form, Aleksandra has the preternatural ability to transcend the mundane and evoke the images, impressions, and patterns that comprise a reality that parallels our own, but clearly encompasses more. She is totally dedicated and committed to her art and its place in her life.

Aleksandra is incredibly deft at decision-making, arriving at well-balanced and thought-out decisions. She is consistent in life and work, also creative work. On stage she is amazingly lively, spontaneous and precise. Aleksandra is an interesting improviser. She is dependable in terms of content and motor skills. She efficiently fulfils theatrical- and movement-related tasks, skilfully transferring them into the language of dance.

I am a keen supporter of Aleksandra having followed her M.A. Thesis (Stimulating Internal Core Support Through Developmental Movement Patterns: research into the reawakening of navel space radiation) with great interest, as well as being a regular participant to her self-developed BACK HOME movement practice. Her research has satisfied my mental understanding of the importance of our “core” on how to reawaken the connection. Even more importantly, I have had the pleasure to experience her classes, which is a very powerful and liberating experience. What I particularly appreciate is her ability to improvise within a structure where I feel the safety of a sound process, and at the same time I am able to experience and practice movements that are completely new to me. It is amazing to realise how easy it is to get stuck in repeating always the same body movements (e.g. confined within the limits of your regular sports etc.), and how seldom we have the opportunity to let our bodies discover new patterns in a playful way regardless of what our mental filters and judgment may think about it. Working with Aleksandra activates stuck energy and opens new doors at the physical, mental and emotional level.

Aleksandra has a fluid and very sensitive movement quality coupled with technical skills. Her dance dialogues with unformulated fields within and connects to the unknown. This ability to combine form and non-form can lead to a high level of artistic expression.
