NATASJA BODE

Natasja works as a dancer, aerialist, artist and teacher.

She started with jazzballet in Harlingen where she grew up. From Dance Explosion to the graduation of her Bachelor of Dance at the Theaterschool in Amsterdam - Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (University of Performing Arts) at the teachers department in 2009. 

During her studies she started dancing in nightclubs’s and other shows. Performed for different agency’s in the Netherlands where she developed beside dancing also performance skills. Strengthening her body for the 'Happy Hour Chandelier'. A unique and stunning entertainment concept created by award winning choreographer and dancer Nanine Linning and star designer Marcel Wanders. This was actually her first introduction to work as a solo artist hanging upside down in the air. With this solo performance she started traveling around the world. 


Working as a freelancer came natural for Natasja. All the different gigs and the agitation triggers. After years of combining dancing on stage and teaching dance,  she felt the need for calmness and introspection. So she started with the Vinyasa Teacher Training program at De Nieuwe Yogaschool in Amsterdam. 

It was useful and she enjoyed it even more than expected. But most of all realized that she’s having the coolest job ever! The maybe forces thoughts of doing something different disappeared in gratitude and gratefulness. And the joyful journey of an aerial dancer started.
