For Tiina Lehtimäki, born in 1988 and grown up in Finland, everything started as a hobby. The hobby became a dream and finally it took shape as a professional education at the Balettakademien in Stockholm. She graduated in June 2013. As an additional training to her education Tiina participated a residential physical theatre workshop in India lead by John Britton and a month long EX-IN workshop in Germany taught by dancer and choreographer David Zambrano.
At the moment Tiina is a freelance performer based in Stockholm and working as a member of the performing arts collective Waste Collective as well as a member of React!- Actions moving.
