Linda

„Our hyperactive member, founder, and coffee lover in one.“

I started with classical ballet when I was 5 years old and I practised it for 11 years. I continued with various types of dance (jazz, hip hop, latin dance, modern dance, slovak folklore,…). In the year 2003 I met flamenco and oriental dances for the first time and I dance it till now. With flamenco I absolved my first performances in outland and workshops with famous dancers from Spain. In the year 2006 I started to dance Indian dances and in 2007 also tribal.

I work also as a bellydance teacher, from the year 2011 also as flamenco and bollywod teacher. I was at birth of dancegroup Shakti, first Slovak group, which focuses exclusively on indian dances.

When I’m not dancing, I do historical fencing, I like to travel, take pictures, and study foreign languages.
