Oksana is a dancer, performer and contemporary dance teacher. She was born and raised in Lithuania where contemporary dance is hardly existing. As a young dancer she trained for 10 years in classical, folk, jazz-modern and creative dance forms with many opportunities to perform. Her first steps towards contemporary dance were inspired by Petras Lisauskas, who introduced her to different forms of improvisation, floor work and movement exploration. The desire to develop, learn and explore further led her to Finland where she graduated from North-Karelia College Outokumpu. She completed the 3 year diploma program in Movement & Performance Research.
Oksana’s current practice focuses on release based training, floor work, speed through release, inner strength and outer softness. Moving out of ‘the comfort zone,’ and directing physically demanding movement qualities and movement patterns into a sense of comfortable embodiment, is a strong interest in her artistic work. To further and deepen her acquired knowledge, as well as refining skills and tools to apply and transmit knowledge efficiently, Oksana joined the MAztp (Master in Contemporary Dance Pedagogy) program at HfMDK (University for Music and Performance Art), Frankfurt am Main in October 2013.
