What we do
For a living
Our showcases are guaranteed to move our audiences. With a wide variety of different dance styles we’re sure to captivate the viewer’s eye. Explosive moments and vivid expressions told through a story with a powerful message is our well known trademark. If you want to give your audience a profound lifelasting experience our showcases are the right choice for you.
To truly show the connection people share, we specialize in creating duet showcases, illustrating the different dynamics or relationships 2 people can have with each other. All our duets are completely different from one another varying from intimate heartbreaking stories, to powerful uplifting performances, also showcasing the individual dance styles and skills from our dancers. An Amenti Collective duet is guaranteed to move it’s audience and they are perfect if you have a smaller budget and want to give your audience an intimate experience
Our mission is to spread awareness and inspire. Throughout workshops we share our knowledge and skills via the Amenti Movemeant Method. In our workshops we put the focus on developing the physical, mental and spiritual growth of the students. Leaving them with a totally different perspective about movement and inspiring them on their way to true self-expression. This can be done on a personal level, or in a group setting. Both providing a unique and life-lasting experience.

Gil the Grid
Gil Gomes Leal / Layer: Sahasrara / Founder / Artistic Leader / Movemeant Coach
Wesley Rommy / Layer: Anahata / Movemeant Coach / Dancer
Business Leader / Creative Producer
By being the Earth Mother of the collective she is in charge of the business side of what we do. Making sure everything that has to do with our production and planning is structurized and done on time. Guiding us through our workspaces, being it at a festival or conference.
Elia has a background in classical dancestyles like ballet, modern and jazz. She later met Gil and Joey at the dance academy where they all graduated, and where she became a more free-of-style mover. After school she decided to discover different artstyles and studied Fine Arts at the Willem de Kooning Academy.
Having an interest in many things she found a way in Amenti Collective to combine her planning skills and love for art and all things moving.

Joey is the man behind the videos we produce! This was not just some random deciscion, as Joey started as a dancer within our collective, but after some time he realised making videos was the thing he wanted to focus most on.
Joey met Gil and Elia during his years at the Dance Academy and soon found out they had a click. During these years he already made some little videos, but never pursued a career within this area.
Later he found out that making moving images was a thing that kept coming back at him through the years. He loves seeing and feeling real emotions and intentions within art, and of course within dance. Being able to portray this in something that will last forever is one of the main reasons Joey loves to work with video.
“They worked hard during the Movemeant Workshop from Amenti Collective during the conference called ‘Waanzien’. Student and professional, young and old were moving together! Past fear, learning how to trust yourself and each other. A beautiful sight and and experience I am grateful for.”
