About Kristina

Kristina’s dancing career started when she was 4 years old and stepped for the first time through the door of the OLYMPIA DANCE SCHOOL in Kosice, Slovakia.Her incredible dance talent was very quickly recognized and she was only 6 years old when she first became the 10 dance Latin and Ballroom Champion in her category. At the age of 8 years, Kristina was selected to become a part of the national Latin formation team. She says: ‘I’ve been a part of the formation teams since a very young age. I’ve learnt the dynamics of the team, as well as what it takes for the team to work as a one unit to become simply flawless. I am very thankful for this experience.’ As she was growing up, Kristina won multiple Latin and Ballroom Championships walking up the ladder of the dance sport.  Kristina’s success was recognized not only nationally but also internationally, which prompted her to study various other dance styles to master her technique. In 2005 Kristina joined the CASSIA DANCE SCHOOL, where she developed her dance style by being trained by the top teachers in ballet, jazz, contemporary and hip-hop. It did not take a long time before Kristina and her dance partner Marosh became very popular and sought after Latin and Ballroom teachers, especially for their friendly and relaxed approach and their ability to tailor the classes based on the individual needs.

Together with the team, Kristina became the European team salsa Champion and this was only the beginning of hers and Marosh’s professional career in salsa.

Travelling to and performing at various UK ( Scottish Salsa Congress, UK Salsa Congress) and International Salsa Congresses (Athens Salsa Congress); taking classes with the world’s top Salsa teachers and performers (Yamulle, Juan Matos, Oliver Pineda) all contributed to creation of their own and very unique salsa style.
