Lenka Boswijk, Russia

Almost every child in Russia can recite poems, there is a constant flow of new concerts and performances, and young creatives make art works that address social issues. Culture is a central theme in Russian society. That’s why I enjoy connecting Russian and Dutch artists, NGOs and cultural organisations. Culture has always been important to me, and I believe that the Russian art scene has a lot to offer. I attended dance academy and studied Russian language and culture. After my studies I lived in Saint Petersburg while completing a traineeship at the Dutch consulate.

Besides DutchCulture, I work as a dancer and dance teacher. I also develop various dance education programmes for children and people with special needs.
