My name is Ida Jorgensen. I am a professionally trained dancer from Norway. I currently live in London, where I have been thriving since November 2017. I spent pretty much my entire life dancing, I went to uni at LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts), then started my burlesque career the following year. Since then I have spent most my time juggling hospitality side jobs and freelance performing – but I am currently doing my 200H YTT (yoga teacher training) and I am attending UEL in the fall to study BSc Physiotherapy.
I am a massive mental health advocate, I was hospitalised and taken very good care of back in December 2018 when I was very Suicidal – and I have been on antidepressants since 2016. To me, that’s just part of the big picture that is me. I struggle in waves. I have more or less chronic anxiety, I did have panic anxiety back when I started my meds, but these days its just regular anxiety id say… My clinical depression varies in strength, but its probably been years since it wasn’t out of sight. But that’s not to say I don’t love life and thrive – I just function along side it.
As a burlesque performer, dancer, woman, HUMAN PERSON, I am also a raving Feminist. Expect to read a lot about it. I won’t get into my core passions, but I can promise a lot of dedicated posts to them.
