Hilde Elbers,(1979) comes from a town where the national war and resistance museum is “the thing”. Resisting this and its 3.626 inhabitants (on 1.307 addresses) she left Overloon at the age of 15, only to find herself in a sports teacher education where she was laughed at because she was too young to learn how to drive.
Though there she puked for the first time, found out how to drink beer and was the worst dancer of the class. Meanwhile she was teaching elderly people aqua-jogging and touched biceps of bodybuilders as the upcoming fitness and aerobics teacher she was. Knowing she would never make it she tried anyways to get into a dance academy. Got surprised by getting in, she cried and decided not to become an aerobics instructor after all. Then the rough years of trying to find out “what the hell is a tendu?” started, she struggled, worked as a cook, a waiter, a teacher and finally got out of this place to become a freelance dance teacher and choreographer around the globe.
Hilde is addicted to chocolate, gets angry if there is no coffee in the morning, thinks pizza has to come with beer and folds her underwear.
