Since then, she has actively pursued an international career as a baroque and renaissance dancer, and has worked in France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, Turkey and the USA.
She is the founder and artistic director of Nordic Baroque Dancers, and a member of French Compagnie l’Eventail, Boston Early Music Festival Dance Ensemble and Belgian Corpo Barocco, with which she has performed around the globe including the Opéra Royal de Versailles, the Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston, the Drottningholm Court Theatre in Stockholm etc.
