‘the apprenticeship influenced me not only as a dancer but as a person in the way I think, observe, perceive and understand my environment. I feel more equipped as a performer, as a mover for the future. I have more clarity, confidence and understanding of what my body and mind can do’ Natalia Gabrielczyk – Shechter II 2018
