Teaching - a two-way street -
Since she began her contact with dance, Lina Gómez realized that the path of learning only becomes enjoyable and infinite when it's a two-way street, where there is a share, where exchanging experiences, contexts and stories are the common thread and provocateur of education.
Her background in Traditional dances from Brazil and Colombia, Contemporary Dance, Somatic practices and Improvisation technics, allows her to discover and research her own teaching methods.
Lina has been teaching in Colombia, Brazil, Portugal, Poland, India, Turkey and Germany.
Since 2017 she is a guest teacher at the Inter-University Centre for Dance HZT-Berlin for the BA (2017 and 18) and MA program (2019).
