I started dancing when I was 17 years old. At first I was involved in street dance (hip hop, house dance, funk), and for a long time I was also involved in waacking. Later, I discovered dancehall music and became interested in dancehall as a dance style that was not yet very widespread in the Czech Republic at that time. A few years later, thanks to videos and Janča J Jelínková, I discovered African modern dances from Angola - kuduro and afrohouse and started to devote myself to these dances.

I have already visited Lisbon several times, where I participated in the Afrobattle Portugal event. In 2017, together with my dance partner Alexa Grig (Romania), I made it to the finals and in 2018 to the semi-finals in the 2vs2 battle (afrohouse & kuduro). In Lisbon, I also took private lessons with local dancers. I enjoyed going to Poland for Kuduromania, which was a unique dance festival specializing in Afrohouse & Kuduro. It was there that I really fell in love with these dance styles and began to fully devote myself to them.

I consider Bolicao to be one of the best kuduro underground dancers, who is an extremely talented and crazy dancer from Lisbon. I love his lessons they are always fun! Also, Selma Mylene is an amazing dancer who has her own unique style and I like her feeling. From Angola, I would single out the singer and dancer Vandra Poster, from whom I took classes in Angola and I consider him one of the best dancers.

I am currently organizing weekend and special events dedicated to African dance styles. We have recently put together the Afro Diversity project with the dancers SHAMI and ANGELA, which is unique. We share our know-how about African dances - traditional Afro, Afrohouse and Afrobeats. The workshops also include a lecture and discussion on the history of African dances

I founded the project together with Andy Staňková and Hanka Nováková when I was still living and teaching mainly in Olomouc. We organized various dance classes, workshops with Czech and foreign lecturers, as well as regular salsa, bachata and kizomba lessons. After I moved to Prague, together with Ivon Szantová and Lenka Nedvědilová, I founded the first Czech afro crew, crew, which focuses mainly on African styles from Angola. Currently, the crew is sleeping and waiting for rebirth. 

My other long-term project is the charity event DANCE AGAINST CANCER, which I have been organizing for several years. Proceeds from the workshops go to the account of the League against Cancer, which organizes the Czech Cancer Day. 

A novelty and heart project is the self-development stay for women Be yourself in cooperation with other interesting lecturers. I myself have been engaged in self-development and setting new patterns and removing limiting beliefs for several years. I am discovering my femininity and healing myself from within. And this is what led me to organize retreats where women can discover themselves in a safe space, explore their femininity, accept themselves as they are through movement (African dance, dance as such, yoga) and self-development exercises and women's circles and rituals . I believe that this program will find those who need it and appreciate it.
