This is a difficult time for all of us. The volume of positive news decreased at the minimum. And this actually helped us to realize what brought/brings happiness, freedom and inspiration to our lives.
Dance has always been part of me. I was 10 years old when my parents went to register my sister for ballroom dancing. They also took me to register. I remember that moment when I sat down on a bench in the ballroom and waited for my parents and sister to return and I told them that I was staying there. As a 10-year-old boy, dancing fascinated me so much that I was the one who motivated my parents to support me. I danced for several years and won several awards. Among the most valuable I count the Semifinals of the Slovakian Championships.
I cannot say that dance has always been part of me. I admired dancers of ballroom dancing, stage dance, ballet etc., how easily they´re able to express emotions through movements and music, and how they can be free. When I was 10 years old I attended ballroom dance class for one semester. I have to admit, I was musically “deaf”. That was also the reason why I decided not to continue and was only a passive admirer. However, then I met Stefan and he brought me back on this path.
Originally, we started dancing Swing (Lindy Hop, Charleston,Shag) and then we discovered Argentine tango which fascinated us so much that we visited Buenos Aires and the school of Rodolfo and Gloria Dinzel, whose methodology Sistema Dinzel became a major part of the curriculum of the University of Tango in Buenos Aires. We are members of the association Tango Klub o.z., which is the only one in Slovakia that teaches Argentine Tango according to this scheme. We participated in many workshops in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
