When creating and rehearsing of the choreography she is inspired by her experience in working with Ferenç Novák and Michael Matthews. The approach of Cily is process oriented: it is not the end result but the way to get there that counts. The alternation of tension and relaxation is central to the lessons.

'In my opinion as a dance teacher, students should be able to be as they are and do the lessons in a relaxing way. Everyone should be able to do and dare: "trial and error". As a teacher I want to inspire, entertain and enthuse.'
