She is regularly invited to give seminars and masterclasses at conservatories and music colleges.

Since 2005 she works together with Françoise Denieau in the performance Bach Suite to choreography of Bach’s Partitas for Flute. She also created the choreography for the performance Maître à danser in 2008.
