Andréa de Keijzer…

… honestly renders me speechless.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Andréa in the framework of some pretty life-altering, spirit-opening, creativity-exploring dance workshops over the past year or so.

And it’s crazy, because every new thing I learn about her just makes me admire her more and more!! Not only is Andréa an extremely talented dance artist, but she also captures the most magical moments on film. Seriously.
