Raimonda Gudavičiūtė started her dance education at the Aura Dance Theatre in Kaunas Lithuania. As a member of this dance company, she has performed at many dance festivals and in many theatres both in Lithuania and abroad. She extended her education with a Bachelor’s degree in dance and drama at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in 2007. She also took part in a student exchange with the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon in France. In 2009 she became a member of the TADaC’09 Company and completed a master’s degree in contemporary dance at the Theatre Academy of Finland. Afterward Raimonda developed the pieces “TAIP” and “Within” in collaboration with Mantas Stabačinskas and Sanna Lundström, among others. These dance pieces were shown in several German, Lithuanian, and Austrian cities as well as in England and Sweden.
Gudavičiūtė works as a freelance teacher and teaches both professional dancers and beginners. She has taught in Lithuania, Finland, Germany (K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie Hamburg, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm/Tanzplattform Rhein-Main and for HfMDK students as guest lecturer in Frankfurt) and Austria, where she taught together with K. Kussmaul at Impuls Tanz in Vienna. She recently gained new experience as a teacher of a dance course for young mothers with their babies. In 2018 Gudavičiūtė performed in the pieces “Pre:paration” and “Gesten der Zärtlichkeit” by director Simon Möllendorf (dorfproduct) at studioNAXOS. Gudavičiūtė’s last work “Forest”, together with the choreographer Birutė Banevičiūtė, for children aged between 8 and 24 months was premiered in Frankfurt in March 2020 and received a great response.
