The Body knows more than you think

Nadja: “Experiential learning has many advantages to just learning in theory and seeing somebody explaining, who doesn’t respond to you personally. Implementing while exploring physically and getting specific feedback gives you insights and makes your progress sensible and visible right away!”

‘Nadja, the Piaf of the 21st Century …This is one of the gems of our programming for next season,” says the theater coordinator, when the thunderous applause has died down…as if Edith Piaf has risen from the dead. de Gelderlander 

“…a beautifully-sung and acted performance from Filtzer, silken smooth vocals and delicate but confident phrasing. Vocally, all is excellent.- Brighton Broadway Baby-Tom Edward “…Nadja and her musicians provided a breathtaking theater performance. What an appearance and facial expressions this woman has! …tears ran down my cheeks and I saw many more around me. So if this wasn’t a true success then I don’t know what is….”de Andijker  “..You feel her strong connection, the intimacy and interaction with the public, the emotion in touching as well as hilarious moments…Goosebumps…seldom heard such a heartbreaking, sensitive version that cuts through your soul…” De Heemsteder- BartJonker 2016.
