Ása enjoys the way dance pushes her body to limits and unlocks new qualities and physicalities within itself. Exploring has always been a part of her, especially how the body responds to different genres of music; how it can isolate, bounce or groove to different tempos. “Each day we are different and that is why the exploration can be endless”. Having learnt many different styles of dance it has made her realize dance is without borders. It is the feeling and space that drives the movement, with honesty and constantly allows her to evolve as an artist.
