Aljaž & Jasmina
Aljaž started dancing salsa in 2007. What started out as a hobby has soon become an indispensable part of his life and a new challenge which he professionally took on under the mentorship of the well known Slovene dancer Matjaž Brinovec. In 2010 the latter formed a salsa performance group known as 3D, which Aljaž was a member of from its beginning until 2012, when the group dissolved. The group 3D performed in Slovenia as well as abroad. They were regular quests at salsa festivals such as Salsa Latina Istriana Pula, Salsa Splash Graz and numerous others.
In 2012 Aljaž focused his dancing career on bachata and kizomba. He took part in many workshops at numerous salsa festivals, such as Salsa Beach Splash Šibenik, Croatian Salsa Summer Festival Rovinj and others and has thus managed to significantly improve his dancing prowess. In 2013 Aljaž became a dancing teacher for salsa, bachata and kizomba and has ever since been sharing his love for dancing with others who are keen to learn how to dance.
Since 2013 he has together with his dancing partner Jasmina concentrated primarily on kizomba. Jasmina first fell in love with the kizomba music and has been later on drawn by the sensual character of this dance. Together they have started to professionally engage in kizomba. In the course of their joint career, Aljaž and Jasmina improved their dancing skills under the mentorship of Matjaž Brinovec and other excellent kizomba dancers from abroad. They participated at numerous workshops at KIFE, the Salsa Beach Splash Festival in Šibenik, workshops in Bratislava, Portorož and Ljubljana. Kizomba has become an important part of their lives which also shows in the dedication they bring into their dancing classes. They really enjoy dancing, especially kizomba which is, in their opinion, due to its sensual character a very special dance. Aljaž and Jasmina have recently recorded their first promotional video which will without doubt be followed by many more as they have further plans for their kizomba career. Above all one can say that they really feel and live kizomba. It’s become their dream and their love that connects them and gives them the opportunity to express themselves together.
