Andréa de Keijzer
Andréa de Keijzer is a movement teacher and performance/photography/video artist from Mexico and Costa Rica, currently living in Montréal. She graduated from York University in 2009 with a degree in Dance and Kinesiology. From 2012-14 she lived in a medical labyrinth after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and labral tears in both hips. These injuries led her to deepen her studies in kinesiology and the Axis Syllabus in an attempt to find dynamic ways of moving that respect the body’s limits and promote safe movement reflexes. Her teaching and creative work are influenced by her studies in contemporary dance, kinesiology, the Axis Syllabus, her video and photography work, urban farming, pottery, and meditation.
