CLAUDIA / responsible for the project in Lisbon / 2002:
I discovered dance was a big passion when I was finishing a graduation in human resources management, 21 years ago.
At that time I started taking street dance classes and then ballet, jazz and tap dance followed.
After graduating I began to work in a big international computer services company but realised very quickly that I was not fit for it. Most of the work did not seem to have any purpose other than profit.
At the same time my time dedicated to dance was growing bigger and I began to participate in small productions, either as a dancer or helping out as an assistant producer.
In 2002 I got sick due to that job and finally decided to make a change. I quit and began to work as a producer in a theatre company and never went back.
I have been working in culture since 2003 and I feel I really find my way. It is more than a passion. It is something meant to be.
