Marije Nie is an extraordinary tapdancer. She is a musician with her feet, a percussionist with the physical energy of a dancer. Strong technique and timing are at the roots of her training. Combined with her creative talent and a love for improvisation, it makes her one of the most versatile tapdancers in Europe. Marije loves to seek out new paths for tapdancing, above and beyond classical tapdance tradition. In the course of her career she has danced with symphony orchestras, Balinese gamelan, experimental electronics and computer musicians, New Dutch Swing musicians, a choir, house DJ's, and all kinds of dancers (modern, hip hop, butoh). In 2007 Marije won the Jur Naessens Muziekprijs for innovation within music.
