After her graduation in 2006, she participated in a project for young dansers by Europa Dance in Cannes. Subsequently she joined the Royal Ballet of Flanders as a member of the corps de ballet. After becoming half-soloist, Claudia danced in several choreographies from - among others - William Forsythe, Jorma Elo, Nicolo Fonte, Edward Clug and Jìri Kylian.

In 2015, upon invitation of director/choreographer Jacopo Godani, she joined the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company of which Godani is the Artistic Director. There, in various of Jacopo’s creations, she was able to artistically develop fully while mastering his unique style of movement. During 3 following years she danced as a soloist and performed in theaters in Frankfurt, Dresden, Moscow, Madrid, Rome, Belgrade, Tel Aviv, Montpellier etc.

In 2018 Claudia decided to leave professional dancing behind in order to focus on other talents of hers. Meanwhile she created various works for professional performances as well as for schools.
